The importance of Electromobility is growing every day and a key component within the electrified powertrain is the Energy Storage System (ESS). At our section, we are accountable for the lifecycle management of the ESS, from advanced engineering, throughout product development into the maintenance phase.  

We are currently looking for a CFD Simulation Engineer to work with advanced 1D and 3D simulations to strengthen our ESS organization and ESS simulation team! You will here be part of a global team of dedicated experts that are responsible for early development of new technologies within the areas electrical energy storage systems. We run and participate in a wide range of projects with both short and long-term goals! You will work in an environment where we have experts within thermal management and thermal simulations. 

Get a chance to sharpen and further develop your skills within the area and get the opportunity to interact with our experts and engineers across the different Volvo organizations. You will be part of a creative team striving for analytical thinking, innovation capability and ability to apply knowledge.

In this role you will: 

•    Develop and utilize 1-D and 3-D simulation methods for evaluating battery pack and thermal performance and safety attributes. 
•    Develop and performing electro-thermal simulations for Power electronics and Electrical Distribution Systems. 
•    Perform system simulations to evaluate the impact on the battery and its attributes such as range, power performance and thermal aspects. 
•    Initiate physical tests and analyze results for validation of the simulation methods. 
•    Create technical documentation of the methods and reports of the analyses.
