Controls Systems Engineer – Full Time – Stafford

  • Contract
  • Stafford
  • Country: United Kingdom
  • Address Region: Staffordshire


Controls Systems Engineer required for a 12 month contract role based onsite with a leading multinational client in Stafford.

There exists a long history of development of HVDC. The department is bringing the development environment in line with a modern requirements management approach to the delivery of HVDC Projects. This department is responsible for the Control system which is one of the subsystems of the HVDC project.
Job would be to create an architecture/architectures from the customer’s specification BUT to follow in part (where it makes sense) what has been developed before on similar projects so as to benefit from previous development.
The HVDC has its own language and international standards that support this language. HVDC has already been solved as part of the Power Transfer industry, it is the specifics of the customers environment and wishes that are the detail we are satisfying. Added to this, there is existing hardware platform that supports the Control system solution. This platform comprises several cabinets (called cubicles in HVDC parlance), each cabinet having several racks and each rack several multiprocessor boards. Part of the architecture responsibility will be to allocate functionality to the various processing boards.
The initial input to the architect will be the Controls system requirement, which itself has to be created from our Customer specification. We are using the EARS (Easy Approach to Requirements Syntax) to specify these requirements. The architect will have to be familiar with this approach.
The architect will use EA (Enterprise Architect) and be responsible for the overall architecture integrity, the documentation of the architecture design. He will be expected to liaise with the project HVDC experts and requirements engineers in developing his work. The expectation is that the relationship between the architecture and the requirements will be kept very close as the requirements are taken down through the various levels.

Essential Skills
• Has to have EA (Enterprise architect) skills.
• Has to have requirements engineering knowledge.
• Must be able to communicate an idea clearly.

Desirable Skills
• Knowledge of HVDC and/or Power Systems.
• Experience of Controls Systems Engineering/Requirements elicitation in similar domains.
