The Control and Instrumentation engineer will design, build, test and commission HMI screens, PLC code and supporting documentation for the RESolve Energy Management System.
The Control and Instrumentation Engineer will work as part of the RESolve team, to develop the RESolve energy management system to control a variety of energy storage and renewable generators in order to optimise their operation.
As energy supply becomes more decentralised and renewable energy makes up a greater percentage of the energy mix, applications where multiple technologies are deployed on the same site will become increasingly common. Controlling a diverse range of technologies will be a key challenge in the future that the Energy Management System project is aiming to address. The development of this control system is particularly important for RES Energy Storage and Off-Grid businesses.
The C&I Engineer will be part of the Group Engineering function, with a direct reporting line to the Senior C&I Engineer.
Support the Senior C&I engineer in the implementation of the RESolve energy management system for energy storage. This will include the following activities:
Develop RESolve graphical user interface / HMI screens
Develop PLC code to the standards defined by the senior C&I engineer
Provide on site commissioning support to implementations of the control systems in operational projects
