Major Duties

Parker Hannifin is looking for a person to be a Technology Lead in the magnetic design of electric motors at the Parker Motor Design Center in the Parker Hannifin Aerospace Group. The motors being designed are used in aerospace and industrial motion control applications. These applications include a wide range of electromechanical actuators and pump systems.

This position will range from mentoring junior engineers up through supporting program management and group staff via presentations and technical support in person with customers. Customers will be interfaced with for all stages from RFIs to proposals, design reviews and through to the resolution of field issues.

A candidate for this position will have a minimum of 15 years experience in the design of electric motors. A Masters or PhD is preferred but not required. The candidate must be proficient in the design of all motor types include brushless DC (Synchronous), AC Induction (Asynchronous), Variable or Switched Reluctance, Torque Motors and other motor types. These motor technologies include both rotary and linear motors. In addition, experience designing magnetic sensors, brakes and clutches is desired.

The candidate will be fully experienced in using industry standard magnetic 2D and 3D finite element tools. A detailed knowledge of first order (lumped) magnetic modelling and the ability to program those models as sizing tools is required.

A detailed knowledge in electronic motor controllers is required. This includes 6 step or trapezoidal, sine drive, space vector modulation and variable frequency controllers. Knowledge and experience with feedback devices typically used in motor control systems is required. An in depth overall understanding of electric motor systems from the electronic motor controller through to the output actuator is necessary.

The candidate will be responsible of all aspects of electric motor design. This will be from supporting initial responses to RFIs, through motor design development to meet DTC and DFM requirements, design reviews, working with motor manufacturing staff and supporting both production and field issues internally and with customers.
