Internship - Dielectric Withstand of Gas Insulated Switchgears 80-100% (f/m/d)

in Zurich
Praktikum nicht angegeben Student

At Hitachi Energy our purpose is advancing a sustainable​ energy future for all. We bring power to our homes, schools, hospitals and factories. Join us and work with fantastic people, while learning and developing yourself on projects that have a real impact to our communities and society. Bring your passion, bring your energy, and be part of a global team that appreciates a simple truth: Diversity + Collaboration = Great Innovation

The design of high voltage (HV) devices, such as gas insulated switchgear and gas circuit breakers (CB), requires - among other things - the accurate determination of their dielectric withstand. The aim of this internship will be two fold. Firstly, to maintain the existing organized collection of available data (a breakdown database) with the analysis and addition of recent tests and new data from literature. and secondly, to provide support for new project development (in SF6 and alternative gases), by means of electric field simulations, maintenance of dielectric evaluation tools and basic tests. Would you like to obtain practical experience in an international and future-oriented company? Then join us as an intern for 6 months. You will be involved in projects and will take on specific tasks independently. Use your time, expand your network and get to know us through an internship.

Your responsibilities

  • Familiarize with the internally developed dielectric evaluation tools and contribute to their maintenance
  • Data post-processing, analysis and evaluation of internally performed breakdown measurements; update of breakdown data base
  • Literature search on recent work regarding breakdown/flashover in technically relevant conditions, also including gases alternative to SF6, data extraction (includes field simulations, e.g. Comsol)
  • Collaborate in high voltage circuit breaker (SF6 and alternatives) development project teams related to dielec-tric design; support the design process with breaker E-field simulations, basic tests, or optimizations

Your background

  • Student (preferably Master-level) in Physics, Mechanical, Electrical Engineering, or a related field
  • Above average proficiency and interest in programming (e.g. Python and/or Matlab, utilization of Python librar-ies)
  • Knowledge in High-Voltage Engineering is advantageous
  • Fluency in written and spoken English
  • Ability to work in a team, as well as willingness to handle responsibilities independently
