Electrical Engineer - Entry Level
Company: Naval Nuclear Laboratory
Posted on: September 7, 2019
The Naval Training and Simulation (NTS) department at the NNL
designs, develops, and deploys training simulators to the US Navy
at training sites and Navy bases across the US. The NTS Electrical
Engineer will work on design, development, and deployment of
real-time software models and emulation of shipboard electrical
equipment and embedded systems for new and existing simulators.
Through this work, the engineer will gain a valuable understanding
of the operation of various Navy propulsion plant electrical
systems via research and design, implementation, and hands-on
testing of several simulators used to train Naval Nuclear
The successful candidate will work in a team oriented environment
on the development of software models for emulation of electrical
generation and distributions systems. These software models
simulate various complex electrical machines, including motors,
generators, breakers, power electronic converters, batteries, and
power distribution grids for current and future Naval Nuclear
Propulsion Program ship classes. Cognizant areas may include
researching, planning, designing, modeling, analyzing, documenting,
and testing of these software models, particularly their
