Development and Applications Engineer (Multiple Positions)
Position Title: Development and Applications Engineer (Multiple Positions)
Position Duties: Develop and implement detailed phasor-based models of protective devices, primarily modern digital relays. Extend phasor-based relay models to the time domain to permit their use in electromagnetic transients simulations. Engage in research on and development of a unique link between phasor-based protection system models and the time-domain environments of both an electromagnetic transients analysis and an electromechanical transient stability analysis. Train practicing protection engineers to apply specialized relay simulation models to actual utility models. Related job duties as required.
Worksite Location: 405 Little Lake Drive, Suite C, Ann Arbor, MI 48103
Minimum Qualifications: Must have Ph.D. or foreign equivalent in Electrical Engineering with a dissertation concentration in the field of electrical power systems protective device modeling or electrical power system transients analysis.

About Electrocon International, Inc.
Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Electrocon International, Inc. develops and markets CAPE software for protection engineering. CAPE's graphical network modeling and system simulation support automatic relay setting, detection of miscoordinated settings, and event analysis. CAPE's is the largest and most detailed library of relay models available. With more detailed, more accurate models, protection engineers study real life conditions, perform wide-area reviews, predict protection system performance, and much more. Electrocon provides ongoing technical support and CAPE-related services for its customers all over the world, which include transmission utilities and engineering firms of all sizes.
Electrocon has been developing tools for computer-aided protection engineering since 1985, working with input from protection engineers from leading North American power utilities. CAPE’s original mission was to create a combined network and protection system model that would support automated relay setting and coordination checking. Today, with a master library of over 5,500 manufacturer-specific relay styles and supported by a true database management system, it is common to see CAPE network models of 2,000 to more than 30,000 buses and protection system models of 5,000 to 50,000 relays. Wide Area Coordination reviews have become a reality as one tool to improve overall power system reliability.
