In this position, the candidate will be responsible for developing technical solutions for a wide range of high performance electromagnetics for Brushed DC (BDC), Brushless DC (BLDC) and Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors (PMSM); and project engineer motor developments with suppliers. Experience is sought in electric motor developments for high performance actuation systems and motion controls. Prospective candidates must be able to design electromagnetics for permanent magnet BDC, BLDC, and PMSM motors as well as critically evaluate other motor supplier's designs. The candidate should additionally have a working knowledge of preferred motor design and construction details, but would not be expected to be the sole mechanical designer. Prospective candidates will have technical ownership of all motor designs (including procured designs). The motor design engineer will be responsible for specification, design, development of fractional horsepower to several HP electric motors including, BLDC, PMSM, brushed motors; design and analysis of PM electric motors for low voltage, high voltage (270V dc), high altitude, and military temperature range environments. Design and analysis will include electromagnetics, electrical and thermal aspects. The position will work with mechanical engineering staff to perform mechanical design, analysis and drawings.
