What to Expect

Come join us as we build the power system of the future with clean and sustainable energy! Come help the Tesla team design, model, and integrate our solar-battery-charging ecosystem to enable this green energy transformation

Tesla is looking for power systems engineers to build on our in-house modeling and hardware-in-loop (HIL) testing capability for our energy storage, solar, and electric charging systems at mass scales. You will interface with utilities, independent power providers, and system operators in technical power systems discussions, and influence our systems design to facilitate scaling on the grid. You will be responsible for developing detailed models of our technology and controls strategies operating on the grid and forming microgrids of different sizes. The role is diverse, fast-paced, and spans multiple levels of electrical, controls, firmware design, and grid-operations

What You'll Do

  • Work with customers and business development team to create models to represent the Tesla Energy system in power flow, dynamic modeling software, and real time simulations tools.
  • Continue to increase our in-house capability to model Tesla's product in HIL testing environment to test the product power system's dynamics behavior when connected to the large and small grids.
  • Perform modelling and HIL testing to ensure that the product behavior meets the product's design specification and project's requirement. As needed, improve models or work with the product team to influence system architecture/controls or work with the customer to set clear expectations of the intended behavior.
  • Improve and build HIL test setups and automate them to perform studies in a time efficient way with clear indexing/documentation of a large test data set.
  • Work with both the product design team and the firmware/software teams to keep models current with the technology roadmap.
  • What You'll Bring

  • Expert knowledge of at least two power system modelling and HIL tools: PSCAD/EMTP-RV, RTDS, Typhoon, OPAL-RT
  • Strong knowledge of at least one programming language: Fortran, Python, C, C++, or Go
  • Direct experience modelling large and small grids with deep understanding of grid level performance requirements
  • Strong working knowledge of control theory, ability to implement PID control
  • Setting up full HIL testing systems including physical and software setups of meters, controllers, network switches, power supplies, oscilloscopes, and interface cards
  • Advanced degree with focus in power systems or control preferred
  • Communicate findings in a concise & clear manner and ability to work cross functionally with customers, engineering, business development, and deployment personnel.
  • From this employer
