Job Description

  • FACTS PDG part of Grid Solutions, a GE Renewable Energy business, delivers high power (>100MVAr) Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) as Static Synchronous Compensators (STATCOM) and Static Var Compensators (SVC), Fixed Series Capacitors (FSC) and Synchronous Condensers (SC) systems. These FACTS devices are used to control power system voltage and reactive power flow, also typically used to improve the integration of renewables to the power system making the future power system more sustainable, well as to improve the power system stability and transmission system efficiency. FACTS technology is at the heart of electrifying tomorrow’s energy. https://www.gegridsolutions.com/facts.htm
  • We are seeking a highly skilled and experienced FACTS (Flexible AC Transmission Systems) electrical engineer with a strong background in power system design & studies for MV/HV substation. Work involves performing system and main equipment studies, component specifications and inquiries and technical discussions with other parties (suppliers, customers, R&D, internal parties)
  • In this position, you will be mainly involved in design and engineering of SVC and STATCOM solutions in close coordination with various engineering team globally.  As a key member of team, you will be responsible for designing of Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) solution for global projects & tenders.


  • Specify and implement grid/transmission system modelling as well as SVC and STATCOM system modelling in most common simulation environment (PSCAD, PSSE).
  • Perform the various power system studies like load flow, short circuit, transient stability and switching transients, insulation coordination, simulation of temporary and transient overvoltage stresses on equipment and surge arrester energy ratings.
  • Developing scripts to automate execution and analysis of simulations
