And we are proud to support our employees volunteer interests, and make it a priority to join together in efforts that give back to our communities.

Job Description


The Senior Fuel Cell System Modeling Engineer will develop and implement system models used in Fuel Cell System (FCS) and Fuel Cell Power Cube (FCPC) development and application.

  • Design and develop complex dynamic models of systems containing hydrogen fuel cell technology and the related components (including fuel cells, hydrogen tanks, batteries, propulsion motors, power electronics, etc.). Models will be capable of predicting system-level behavior of fuel cell based systems including electrochemical reactions, voltage, current, flow, pressure, temperature, and gas concentrations.
  • Work closely with controls engineers to integrate this model with fuel cell system controls to produce full model-in-the-loop (MIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tools using Matlab/Simulink.
  • Work closely with multi-disciplined engineering teams to understand and develop functional requirements and initiate, perform, and communicate results of appropriate modeling/analysis tasks.
  • Use the MIL/HIL tools to perform system architecture, operating condition, and cost optimization studies.
  • Interface with hardware design and test engineers to develop test plans to generate system-level dynamic response data. Employ underlying physics and/or system identification tools for model parameter identification.
  • Perform model validation using mass and energy balance checks and statistical comparison to component and system test data. Define tests to efficiently cover the range of anticipated application operating conditions.
  • Execute project plans with appropriate technical guidance.
  • Travels as required

Additional Job Description

  • BS in Engineering and 2-3 years of experience or MS in same with 1+ years or Phd with study in dynamic modeling
  • Experience in electrified systems (e.g. fuel cell, battery electric, or hybrid vehicle) analysis, modeling, and/or control
  • Knowledge in classical and modern dynamic modeling theory including practical nonlinear system identification techniques.
  • Knowledge of numerical methods and dynamic process modeling.
  • Experience in Matlab/Simulink/State Flow or similar CAE tools.
  • Ability and motivation to learn new technologies and employ systems engineering and controls to make such technologies practical.
  • Ability to work in a team and interface with colleagues from different backgrounds towards technology improvement and problem resolution.

  • MS in Mechanical/Chemical Engineering with study in dynamic physical modeling and 6+ years of experience or Phd w/ 3+.
  • Experience in implementation of MIL/HIL systems
  • Experience with software change & configuration management systems (e.g. GiT)
  • "C" programming experience
  • Dynamic modeling experience using GTPower, AMESim or similar CAE tools
  • Experience with the development and implementation of system level test protocols and advanced data analysis techniques to support the validation of complex models.
  • High level of oral and written communication skills
  • High level of interpersonal skills to work independently and effectively with others
  • High level analytical ability where problems are unusual and complex
