Purpose of the Job
The EMC Engineer will support railway signalling projects to achieve compliance in EMC. His/her task will be to ensure the electromagnetic compatibility of Signalling railway system in term of: design, analyse, installation, compliance of products according to EMC standards and the tests.
What are my responsibilities?
- Write within the framework of projects the EMC Control Plans (from the EMC requirements of the Project Contract, definition of EMC activities, deliverables, design requirements and EMC tests).
- Ensure Urban & Mainline EMC Engineering rules (from UEVOL System (/N&T PDI)) be adapted and applied to Urban & Mainline projects on EMC scope
- Ensure delivery of EMC documents as per project Documentation plan (refer to DML <=> Documentation Master List + CDRL) in line with project DFQ Gate Reviews milestones
- Identify the technical and physical interfaces deployed on the project and mitigate the EMI all along the project
- Submit EMC rules for the design of products and check their appliance during the process (general architecture, layout of subsystems and electrical interfaces, HV/MV/LV cabling, earthing, etc).
- Prepare the EMC test specifications (on-site Test Plans).
- Check the EMC test specifications and reports/certificates of compliance from subsystems suppliers.
