Full Time Permanent

UK Jobs Board

Our client a global automotive organisation are looking for an experienced Simulation/Analysis Engineer:

Key Objectives & Responsibilities:

Reporting to the Principal Engineer – Thermal Systems, you will be responsible for the simulation and analysis of vehicle efficiency focusing on range and thermal/climate systems within the Vehicle Development team.

The Role

* Development of 1D vehicle simulation models covering the vehicle thermal management and cabin climate systems

* Maintain models in accordance with changes to vehicle hardware, calibration, and component and system physical test data

* Preparation of reports and feedback to the technical and project management teams

* Run models to verify system requirements, run system experiments, ‘What-if’ scenarios, and identify failure modes

* Pro-actively recommend component, system, and/or calibration changes that improve overall vehicle efficiency

* Work cross-functionally with Vehicle Attributes, Thermal & Climate systems, Electric Propulsion, Interiors, Drive Line, and Electrical groups


* You will have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience in a relevant area with at least 3 years of industry experience

* Demonstrable experience or understanding in the following areas:

* Development of complex system models using 1D simulation applications

* Correlation of simulation results to component & system physical test data

* Correlation of simulation results to hand calculations – sanity checking of model integrity

* System parasitic losses, efficiency, and how they relate to overall energy consumption

* Thermodynamics and heat transfer theory

* Fluid mechanics & pressure loss

* System control and calibration

* Basic understanding of electrical power concepts such as series & parallel circuits, electrical resistance, and power calculations

* Where required support Engineering in cross-functional teams and meetings.

* Comfortable with working within tight time frames

* You will be someone who takes a ‘fresh-eyes’ approach to problem solving and is comfortable with presenting new alternative ideas to the norm
