The vision of the Fleet Support team is to support overall ONSW goal to get world’s best running fleet, by minimizing quality escapes impact to GE and customers and ensuring technicians safety during repair operations.

The role of the Senior SVO engineer includes high fidelity WT modeling, fleet data analysis, aeroelastic simulation and executing System Value Optimization assessments and trade-offs to support ASRs, RCAs and PACs.

Job Description

About us
GE’s Onshore Wind business has a total installed base of more than 50,000 wind turbines in more than 35 counties, with 100+ GW of global installed capacity. We harness increased onshore wind energy potential through a broad family of turbines that are uniquely suited for a variety of wind environments, including Cypress, GE’s most powerful onshore wind turbine, and GE’s 2MW platform, which has more than 20GW installed and in operation today. We are committed to our customers’ success in wind, offering a broad portfolio of products and services that make renewables the energy of choice for a cleaner future.

Essential Responsibilities

  • Executes Fleet Data Analytics to identify bad performers in the fleet before any failure occurs and drives corrective actions to prevent it.
  • Analyzes GR data and high frequency trip data to understand reason for turbine trips and or failures.
  • Field event Co-Simulations to investigate root cause of component failures or underperformance and apply containment and corrective actions.
  • Performs load assessments to support ASRs, RCAs & PACs, leveraging control technologies to mitigate mechanical loads & improve turbine power performance.
  • Supports high fidelity WT model creation, partnering with RCA teams and Multibody Simulation (Simpack) team to improve model fidelity where needed to support field events investigation.
  • Provides solutions in the field of simulation, operability or system trade-off recommendation to optimize the cost of energy by reducing design driving loads and maximizing the energy capture.
  • Supports activities in the aeroelasticity and stability domain.
  • Works closely with the Controlled Tittle Holders community across the business and global team members to ensure high quality and consistency on system simulation techniques & practices.
  • Partners with CTH to incorporate field related lessons learned back into the design process via Design Practice updates.
