Tractive System Electronics

Main Task

The Tractive System, TS for short, is defined as all the electronics in the high current path. This means, ideally speaking, having knowledge and understanding over the electronics between the batteries and the motor. This mainly includes the HV-cables, inverter, motor and the HV electronics compartment. You’ll be working closely with the people in charge of the accupack, the Low Voltage circuits and the Monocoque design.

Your Profile

You should have an interest in designing electronics and hardware. This is a very wide role where you do get to do a little of everything. From deciding on what HV-cables to use, programing the inverter and to designing the electronics housing. With this range of areas you will be the middleman between many systems and you are therefore a good communicator. You have a solid knowledge in electronics and being confident with CAD is a merit.
