Role Summary:The Systems Thermal Senior Engineer should have expertise on system level thermal analysis and management for Wind Turbines. He/she will work with subsystems SILs and component owners to define system level strategy to manage thermal conditions inside wind turbine and develop strategies to expand Wind Turbine thermal capabilities, specifying design requirement for component.

Essential Responsibilities:

Reporting to the Systems, Performance &SVO Manager, he/she will coordinate thermal analysis activities within the team and any additional resources include. CFD contractors

Essential Responsibilities:

Provide technical solutions and design support for Wind Turbine Thermal Balance

Provide analysis and data processing leading to the identification and reduction of temperatures inside the wind turbine

Provide support to develop Thermal models, including detailed CFS, simplified CFD models as well as analytical models

Interact with design engineers in simultaneous engineering team to provide inputs for new wind turbine design.

Execute experimental models to validate assessment models, methods and turbine design and to develop new technologies

Interact with tool developers to provide input for next generation tools development and validation

Support the system level optimization targeting trade-off solutions for cost of energy reduction

Assess design risks and establish validation plans for new concepts in thermal design

Consideration of environmental conditions (temperature, air density, wind speeds and solar radiation) relative to their influence on the operation of the wind turbine regarding thermal behavior.

Support the complete design review process regarding the thermal behavior of wind turbines and all its interaction regarding component specification, design and validation including generation of all related documentations

Thermal analysis and associated reviews scheduling and coordination, including internal/external resources management

Development of new/alternative methodologies targeting to have a better understanding, and leaner/faster and more flexible analysis methods as well as a better leverage of thermal behavior return of experience from the vast fleet GE operates.

Develop analysis methods and tools to support probabilistic design approach for cutting corners specification and for optimize wind farm operation specific to the WF thermal / electrical conditions, in joint effort with subsystem designers.

Support fleet issues regarding thermal behavior, conduct RCA and propose mitigation actions, while capturing return of experience to prevent re-occurrence
