Internship in mechanical and system simulations for High Voltage Circuit Breakers 100% (f/m/d)

For our business unit High Voltage Products in Zurich-Oerlikon, we are looking for an intern (6 - 12 months) in the interrupter development team to contribute to the simulation team of our Technology Center. Objective of the internship is to carry out mechanical and system simulations to evaluate the performances of circuit breakers as well as test data analysis and their utilization in the simulations.

The studies will be carried out with the Dymola software and with in-house software library dedicated to system modeling and simulation of the circuit breakers. The scope of the internship will be also focused on the mechanical multibody (kinematic) analysis including finite element method. By interacting with experienced engineers and scientists, the intern will acquire basic knowledge regarding product technologies and become an active contributor to the relevant simulation activities.

Our flexible working practices help you optimize personal and business performance while creating an environment where all employees can develop their skills and grow.

Your responsibilities

  • System simulations of circuit breakers using Dymola

  • Pre and post processing of simulations models and results

  • Finite element analysis of circuit breakers’ components in ABAQUS

  • Data post-processing and analysis using Python

  • Active participation in R&D projects of high voltage circuit-breakers

Your background 

  • Student (preferably Master-level) in Physics, Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, or a related field

  • Basic knowledge of simulations associated with mechanical and electrical engineering applications

  • Knowledge of mechanics and material strength (practical skills in ABAQUS or similar finite element code is advantageous)

  • Above average proficiency and interest in programming in Python

  • Knowledge and practical skills of Modelica language and Dymola are advantageous

  • Practical skills in Python GUI programming are advantageous

  • Fluency in written and spoken English

  • Ability to work in a team, as well as willingness to handle responsibilities independently
