Scientist III – Power Electronics

Innovate to solve the world's most important challenges

Honeywell Aerospace offers an opportunity for a talented scientist of engineer with demonstrated experience in power electronics for motor drives, to join Advanced Technology organization in Brno, Czech Republic. You will work in the Electro-Mechanical Systems department on the development of motor controller technologies and systems for aerospace, pushing the boundaries in reliability and power density.

As a member of cross-functional team, your work will span from the early stage technology research up to the prototype demonstration in the harsh environment. This role assumes ability to deal with challenging and often conflicting design requirements in an innovative way. If you like to learn new things and enjoy being challenged by work beyond the state of the art, you might be the right person.

Your specific role could include:

  • Definition of specifications and requirements based on system-level requirements
  • Performing trade studies related to motor control, inverters, power conversion, selection of key components
  • Development of prototype inverters and other power electronic circuitry (schematic design, cooperation on layout with layout engineers), related design and analysis
  • Cooperation with mechanical and thermal engineers, solving challenges with integration of power electronics into the defined space or envelope
  • Participation in design and research related to motor control algorithms
  • Component and system-level testing, integration, and verification of motor controller prototypes
  • Planning and execution of EMI/EMC testing per aerospace (DO-160) and military (MIL-STD) standards (development and informal verification testing)
  • Participation on software and firmware development, debugging and testing
  • Participation on the project planning and budgeting on the task level
