As a Substation P&C Engineer, you will play a critical role in ensuring the safe and efficient operation of electrical substations. You will be responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining protection and control systems for substations, ensuring they meet industry standards, regulations, and reliability requirements.
Protection System Design: Design protection schemes for substation equipment, including relays, circuit breakers, transformers, and buses, to safeguard against overcurrent, fault conditions, and other potential disturbances.
Control System Development: Develop control logic and schemes for substation automation, remote monitoring, and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems to optimize substation performance.
Equipment Specification: Specify and select appropriate protection and control equipment, including relays, and communication protocols
Testing and Commissioning: Perform testing and commissioning of protection and control systems to ensure they operate as designed and meet reliability standards.
Troubleshooting: Diagnose and resolve complex issues related to protection and control systems, including relay misoperations, communication problems, and network issues.
Documentation: Maintain accurate documentation of protection and control settings, wiring diagrams, and system configurations for reference and future maintenance.
Regulatory Compliance: Ensure compliance with industry standards (e.g., IEEE, IEC), local regulations, and grid codes governing substation protection and control systems.
Collaboration: Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including substation engineers, project managers, and field technicians, to execute projects effectively and on time.
Training: Provide training to operations and maintenance personnel on the proper operation and maintenance of protection and control systems.
- Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering or a related field; a Master's degree is a plus.
- Professional Engineer (PE) license is preferred.
- Minimum of 5 years of experience in substation protection and control engineering.
- Proficiency in protection relay settings and coordination.
- Experience with SCADA systems, substation automation, and communication protocols.
- Knowledge of industry standards and relevant regulations.
- Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
- Excellent communication and teamwork abilities.
- Ability to work independently and manage multiple projects simultaneously.
