Power Plant Performance Optimization Expert

Location: Budapest


Type: Állandó

Closing Date: 12 May 2024

Job Reference: 1181098

A Snapshot of Your Day

Power plants are amongst the most complex and complicated machines in the world. They ensure the reliable supply with electrical energy and steam for district heating. The Machines are re-worked and improved, but we do the software improvements. With our advanced control concepts we tune those complex machines to reduce emissions and enable them for faster load changes, which again helps to stabilize our grids.

How do we do it?

Analysing the plants is always first. Check for optimization potential. Then we check also the existing logics and during an engineering phase we implement our advanced logics, based on which we do a subsequent site commissioning. We are a team, working mainly in an office in Karlsruhe, but also in other locations, where we do the engineering. Site work is usually done by a team of one Master and one “Student”, while also Masters can be students to share know how and experience. The commissioning phases are usually between one to four weeks and the plants that we work on are all around the world.

So do you know power plants already or are you curious about power plant processes? Do you know closed loop control concepts? Do you have an intrinsic motivation, but you still like to work with teammates? Is Travelling to new countries appealing for you? This might be the right job for you!
