INEGI – Instituto de Ciência e Inovação em Engenharia Mecânica e Engenharia Industrial is an Organization focused on the research, technology-based innovation and technology transfer activities, with a strong collaborative network with the University of Porto, Portugal. In the context of a significant increase in R&D activities, the INEGI is looking for a highly motivated candidate to join its Product Systems Development (DPS), within the scope of the project POCI-01-0247-FEDER-045926 funded by ANI.

Mechanical Engineer (m/f)

Project title: Digital Revolution of Power Transformers


The Transformer 4.0 project seeks to introduce the digital transformation in power transformers. Aiming this transformation, a comprehensive research plan focused on the Digital Twin (DT) concept will be implemented. This DT, as virtual counterpart of the physical system will enable disruptive approaches in the transformer design and manufacturing, with new communication models, and to offer new added value services, such as intelligent condition monitoring, preventive maintenance, aging evaluation under determined servicing conditions, among others. Following the physical product during its whole life cycle through a DT enabled platform powered with optimization and artificial intelligence tools, will enable valuable insights about designing future systems, and predicting the system’s response to different types of disruptions in the grid. Furthermore, digital manufacturing will be explored through additive manufacturing, which has the potential to revolutionize the design and manufacturing of power transformers. This feature integrated with the Digital Twin platform will allow disruptive approaches in the manufacturing and servicing of transformers.

The position includes:

·   Development a proof of concept for the integration of addictive manufacturing into the design of the power transformer components with the support of the digital-twin platform and the associated tools;

·   Evaluation of 3D printed alternatives;

·   Design for AM (DfAM) of components and parts;

·   Disruptive AM approaches for transformer parts;

·   Contribute for prototyping, evaluation and part service qualification;

·   Contribute for the project technical reports;

·   Contribute to scientific production.

INEGI’s team is looking for a candidate with the following profile:

·   Master in Mechanical Engineering;

·   Knowledge in the field of mechanical design of complex systems, with knowledge in the area of product development;

·   Critical analysis and goal-oriented;

·   Responsibility, pro-activity, motivation and autonomy;

·   Fluent written and spoken Portuguese and English.

INEGI’s team offers:

·   Integration in a reference Research and Technology Organization;

·   Salary conditions adjusted to the profile and potential of the selected candidate.
