Job Title: Powertrain HIL Plant Modeling Engineer - 975
Location: Auburn Hills, Michigan
Hybrid position with minimum of 4 days in office each week.
Pay Range: $42-$45.98/hr
The Powertrain Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) Plant Modeling Engineer's job is to create and maintain plant models that represent powertrain subsystems. Required to design models for flexibility and reuse -- common models are used across a wide range of applications through specific sets of parameters which are maintained separately from the generic models. The engineer needs to architect models into separate libraries for each subsystem and for interfaces to real I/O. The engineer uses design data, performance specifications, and experimental data (such as engine performance from dynamometer tests) to extract parameters for the models. This job entails working as part of a team of modeling engineers with assignments that rotate among different powertrain subsystems as requirements for new features dictate. Testing and verification are part of the responsibility, as is supporting users who use the test equipment. The models are correlated with real-world data to prove their accuracy.
