Description

NASA Glenn Research Opportunity - Aeronautics

 NASA is conducting research and flight testing to create and mature the technology needed for hybrid and electric aircraft spanning from general aviation up to Boeing 737 size aircraft.  The purpose of this research is to reduce the aviation fuel burn and emissions and strengthen U.S. competitiveness in this key export sector of the economy.  NASA Glenn Research Center, located in Cleveland, OH is seeking to fill one Electrical Engineer (AST, Electrical Power Systems) position to participate in this research. This is a term appointment for a period of up to six (6) years.

 Position Title: Electrical Engineer, AST, Electrical Power Systems, 0850-00

 Location: NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH

 Annual Salary range: $113,458 - $172,500

 Appointment duration: Up to 6 years

 Duty Description:

The NASA John Glenn Research Center is seeking a highly experienced, self-motivated industry leading electrical engineer who can serve as a senior technical electrical engineering specialist for our high-power electric propulsion development for aeronautics projects focusing on small and larger aircraft applications.  Seeking an individual with experience in design, and development of high power / high voltage power systems / electronic power conversion and high-speed high-power megawatt machines for aerospace applications and applying this knowledge base to the application of electrified aircraft propulsion and potentially space power applications. 

 Duties include both direct research conducted at NASA Glenn Research Center and work monitoring, reviewing, and in some cases assisting industry partners conduct flight demonstrations of hybrid electric systems.  Research is focused on mega-watt class aviation power systems used for aircraft propulsion spanning across aircraft sizes and operational requirements.  These systems include a combination of high speed/high power electrical machines, power electronics, cables, connectors, circuit protection devices, and energy storage.  Power sources span internal combustion engines, turboprops, turbofans, and fuel cells.  The research challenges focus on creating an integrated power system that is light and efficient enough to result in an aircraft with a net benefit.  Weight and losses need to be reduced by about a factor of three compared to state of the art aircraft while simultaneously increasing the power level by a factor of five.  Integration challenges include control, thermal, EMI, high voltage, transient response, and stability.  The outcome of the research will be both enabling technology and data to inform new standards and regulations for the aircraft industry.

 Responsibilities include:

 Leading and conducting research and testing on integrated MW-class aviation powertrain systems

  • creating and/or advancing enabling technology for light weight / high power / high voltage inverters, converters, fault protection devices, and electrical machines
  • development and operation of testbeds to demonstrate the high power/high voltage concepts;
  • Providing subject matter expert level review and advice for industry flight demonstrations
  • provide expert advice in the evaluation of contractors' proposals in response to request for proposals for high power / high voltage power systems;
  • serve on standards and regulations committees and provide and analyze data to support modified or new aviation regulations and standards
  • serve as an information resource to engineering/research within the laboratory or on related or similar projects, such as significant improvements to existing flight systems, including propulsion and power or measurement and instrumentation systems;
  • written and oral communication of technical work to NASA, industry, and the public
