Enabling the industrial energy transition

Back Apply now

Power conversion will be an important driver to enable the transition from fossil to renewable energy. In a more electrical society power conversion will be required to connect, control and balance the different electricity users with the (distributed) renewable sources. The vision of the product line ‘Industrial Power Systems’ is to enable the industrial energy transition to full electrification and energy storage, by providing grid-connected high-power solutions to industrial and utility partners.

Next week I have to give a presentation to a big German company, to present a technical concept for a one-Gigawatt converter, to connect a Power-to-Gas (P2G) reactor to the electricity grid. The reactor is an innovative concept, which enables storage of surplus renewable energy, such as wind and solar, into gas and feeding it back into the electricity grid when needed.

Large scale storage of electrical energy into gas or liquids is an essential technology to comply with the challenges of the Paris Agreement. My colleagues and I will take care of the power conversion unit, transforming the AC grid voltage into the required DC process voltage. We have prepared the concept presentation with a multidisciplinary team, addressing electrical, mechanical and software solutions. We have to compete with several other suppliers, so we have emphasized the features of our unique solutions to achieve high efficiency and long lifetime for a very competitive price.

The basic concept for this solution was developed in close cooperation with the Eindhoven University of Technology. The technology is protected by a patent where the involved students are listed as inventors. Today we had an intensive discussion with our sales team to estimate our position and determine the price setting and conditions for our proposal. With our fully automated in-house production we can offer high quality for a competitive price. If the proposal is granted by the customer, a multidisciplinary team will be defined with both experienced and junior engineers to realize the power conversion unit.

We need fresh ideas and enthusiasm to move the industry from fossil fuels to renewable energy

Pros and cons

  • Contribute to a cleaner planet

  • Applying the latest technology in professional products

  • Design for in-house production facilities

  • Verification in a top-class laboratory

  • Work in a multidisciplinary and international team

  • Cooperate with the best universities in the world

Every day is a different day as a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) designer at Prodrive Technologies. After getting a warm cup of coffee, I start my laptop and begin working on my current project. It is not just ‘connecting electrical components together with copper’; PCB designing is so much more.

As a PCB designer, I jump from project to project to design all kind of PCBs. One week I work on a giant high-speed board with still not enough space and the next week, I am creating a tiny high-power PCB which needs as much cooling as possible. By working on a great number of different projects, I gain a lot of experience in the many fields of electrical engineering. 

Usually, I work together with electrical- and mechanical engineers to create the desired product. We tackle problems and try to optimize the design as much as possible. Also, close contact with the manufactures and assemblers of the PCB is very important. You can have the greatest ideas while designing, but the board should still be producible.

At Prodrive Technologies I got the chance to work with so many different talented colleagues to design amazing products and I learn something new from them every day!

A small tip: coffee and PCB designing goes well together, coffee and a PCB on the other hand, doesn’t.

Asking for help is a strength, not a weakness

Pros and cons

  • Freedom to find the role that fits me best. If I don’t like what I am doing, I change to something that I do like

  • Flexible working hours

  • Contribute to impressive products

  • It is hard to stop my working day because there is so much more I want to do at Prodrive Technologies!
