Job Summary

Perform Dry Low NOx (DLN) tuning and commissioning activities on industrial gas turbine (IGT) engines used for power generation. This position also includes aerothermal / performance analysis, start-up support and GT controls activities, AutoTune installations, support for RCA activities & sales / tendering support.
Reports to: Manager, Tuning & Controls Group
Essential Duties and Responsibilities
The essential functions of the job include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Perform DLN tuning on IGT engines, aerothermal / performance analysis, engine health assessment (operability and reliability), failure diagnostics and RCA analysis.
  • Perform controls tasks related to engine commissioning activities as well as troubleshooting of IGT control system hardware and software on control system platforms: GE Mark platforms, Siemens T3000 and TXP, Emerson Ovation and MHI Netmation
  • Provide technical support to the sales & tendering teams for new proposals, support commercial projects and coordinate & support readiness reviews.
  • Start-up support for new engines as well as modification and upgrades for older frame units.   Troubleshoot start-up GT and auxiliary system problems. 
  • As necessary, support limited redesign of GT components and systems to meet design and performance criteria, such as emissions, hardware life and cost.

  • Must have 5+ years prior experience related to one of the following
    • IGT operation including commissioning activities associated with tuning lean, premixed combustion systems or troubleshooting controls and auxiliary/support systems
    • Experience working with lean, premixed combustion system designs and the tradeoffs between emissions and acoustic pulsations in real world applications
    • Industrial gas turbine cycle-deck/performance testing, modeling and analysis
    • GT control system design, modification and troubleshooting (GE and/or Siemens) and knowledge of detailed GT control philosophy
  • Must have strong data gathering, reduction and analysis experience (PI, EXCEL, Matlab, …) and appropriate skillset to draw conclusions and report results
  • Experience with Industrial GT general architecture and design a plus
  • Candidate should have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and the ability to manage multiple tasks, priorities and deadlines.
  • Ability to program in one or more scientific programming languages highly desirable
  • Utilize appropriate design/analysis tools as necessary, such as performance decks, flow circuit programs, 3D modeling (ProE), scheduling (MS PROJECT and VISIO) and others.

  • Stooping/Crouching -- bending body downward and forward by bending spine at the waist.
  • Kneeling -- bending legs at knee to come to a rest on knee or knees.
  • Reaching -- extending hand(s) and arm(s) in any direction.
  • Standing -- particularly for sustained periods of time
  • Walking -- moving about on foot to accomplish tasks, particularly for long distances or moving from one work site to another.
  • Pushing & Pulling
  • Lifting up to 20 lbs -- raising objects from a lower to a higher position or moving objects horizontally from position-to-position.
  • Grasping -- applying pressure to an object with the fingers and palm.
  • Repetitive motion -- substantial movements (motions) of the wrists, hands, and/or fingers.
  • The worker is required to have close visual acuity to perform an activity such as: preparing and analyzing data and figures; transcribing; viewing a computer terminal; extensive reading; visual inspection involving small defects, small parts, and/or operation of machines (including inspection); using measurement devices; and/or assembly or fabrication parts at distances close to the eyes.
  • The worker is subject to both environmental conditions. Activities occur inside and outside.
  • The worker is subject to noise. There is sufficient noise to cause the worker to shout in order to be heard above ambient noise level.
  • The worker is subject to hazards. Includes a variety of physical conditions, such as proximity to moving mechanical parts, moving vehicles, electrical current, working on scaffolding and high places, exposure to high heat or exposure to chemicals.
  • The worker is frequently in close quarters, crawl spaces, and other areas that could cause claustrophobia.
  • The worker is required to function in narrow aisles or passageways.
  • Requires significant travel (air & ground) with short notice.
