Job Description

As Electrical Engineer for Green Hydrogen, you will be largely responsible to bring in and apply the expertise of various renewable energy sources (solar PV, wind) and their integration with electrolyzers as well as downstream process equipment to produce Green Hydrogen. You are required to apply cross-domain expertise in renewable energy generation, power electronics, electrical system design, process integration, and data analytics to contribute toward Shell’s plan for the energy transition.

Technical focus areas in this role are as follows:

  • Research on power electronics hardware and software to enable efficient power conversion from renewable sources to electrolyzers.
  • Optimizing power conversion in the distribution system between the renewable source and electrolyzer.
  • Develop new electrical architectures to enable efficient and balanced coupling between renewable sources and electrolyzers.
  • Developing cost reduction pathways for power conversion based on deep technical understanding and competitive intelligence from major Original Equipment Manufacturers.
  • Experience in working with National Grid Codes and compliance verification process with Transmission System Operator and Distribution System Operator (e.g. NL TenneT grid code, UK national grid code).
  • Technology development for powering GW scale electrolysis.
  • Proven track record in industry-relevant electrical engineering software packages such as Digsilent/Powerfactory, ETAP, and PSCAD.
  • Ability to perform front-end engineering studies covering the following aspects of electrical system design:
    • HV Cable sizing calculations
    • Reactive power simulation
    • (Steady state) load flow simulations
    • Short circuit current simulation
    • Insulation coordination
    • Control and protection study
    • EM-field and Influence study
  • Responsible for making the technical deliverables related to electrical engineering (e.g., single line diagram, electrical interface diagrams, load lists).
  • Responsible for the electrical technical deliverables within a multi-disciplinary project team during the Feasibility/Select/Define Phase of the project.
  • Analyzing the data from existing pilot plants to develop insights for optimization of Green Hydrogen systems.
  • Additional responsibilities will include analysis as well as recommendations towards international standards for Green hydrogen to achieve scalability of systems for cost reduction..
