Electromagnetic Simulation (CAE) Engineer


Hybrid Position: This position does not require an employee to be on-site full-time to perform most effectively. The employee’s role enables them to work at a GM facility or off-site as frequently as needed or desired.

This position requires an employee to be onsite 1-3 times per week .

The Electromagnetic Simulation (CAE) Engineer will be responsible for developing and implementing electromagnetic simulation for various high voltage components like Battery Pack, Motor, Invertor, Busbars, BDU, Filters and Contactors.

They will be responsible for developing new analysis capabilities in the space of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Impedance Simulation and Antenna gain.

This person will interpret and present results to decision makers at key program gates for GM Global Vehicle Development Program. Analyst will be required to interact closely with team members and work cross functionally to deliver standard work, root cause analysis, compare analytical results to tests, develop new analysis capabilities, and identify analytical gaps.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop models for electromagnetic interference, impedance estimation, and wireless communication using tools like Ansys HFSS, Q3D, Maxwell and JMAG
  • Develop 1D Electromagnetic system models using tools like Ansys Simplorer, Saber, Matlab and Simulink
  • Perform Electromagnetic analysis to deliver design solutions which are robust and reliable, applying optimization and statistical methods when appropriate
  • Work collaboratively with Propulsion/ Battery System integration engineers, Electrical Architects, and component hardware design teams to ensure system requirements are met, design concepts are evaluated, and development and validation plans are successful
  • Collaborate with other CAE teams to integrate higher fidelity Electromagnetic models with thermal and dynamics models
  • Ensure on time delivery of high-quality results
