Organization Profile :
Pratt & Whitney Canada is one of the world’s leaders in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines powering commercial and regional airplanes, as well as general aviation aircraft and helicopters. Our strong reputation for highly skilled personnel (10,000 employees across the globe), our reliable engines and our exceptional aftermarket support service network attract customers from all over the world (over 190 countries).
General responsibilities of the position :
At UTAP, we need you to help fuel a dynamic innovation project using your skills, expertise, and love of teaming to help make this happen. Are you looking for a rare opportunity to be part of something unprecedented at United Technologies? Are you invigorated by a healthy mix of creativity and structure? If so, we want to meet you.
Project 804, our hybrid electric propulsion (HEP) project, needs you to lead all aspects of delivering work scope to the system integrator lead with respect to the full hybrid-electric engine performance and operations, including heat engine time dependent response, heat engine steady and transient torque response, electric motor steady and transient response, combined power steady and transient response, propeller performance integrations, incumbent engine steady and transient response matching all the way to the aircraft model integration . The modeling will involve leading the overall integration and coordination with the multiple partners who will generate their own sub-component level models. The chief performance engineer will be responsible for integration of all the sub-component level models into the high level aircraft model which includes the incumbent turboprop engine. Ultimately the chief performance and operation engineer will be responsible for the calibrated propulsion and all auxiliary power output prediction for the overall demo aircraft propulsion system and the generation of aerodynamic design points and secondary systems boundary conditions.
Specific responsibilities of position :
• Coordinate engine time dependent model generation and calibration
• Coordinate heat engine steady and unsteady model generation and calibration
• Coordinate incumbent engine steady and unsteady mapping, analytically or with flight testing
• Coordinate hybrid-electric engine steady and unsteady model generation and calibration
• Generate power setting tables for the hybrid-electric powerplant
• Generate aero design points and secondary air system boundary conditions
• Coordinate integration of the hybrid-electric powerplant integration with propeller and aircraft
• Support P804 Experimental AFM performance section generation with particular operations of the HEP in combination with the incumbent engine of P804
• Multidisciplinary mechanical, electrical and/or aircraft engineer. Background in engine development performance, aircraft performance and time dependent modeling

Qualifications required :
• Minimum of Bachelor’s degree in Engineering, post graduate degree preferred
• More than 15 years relevant experience in the aerospace industry, especially engine and aircraft systems integration
• Demonstrated history of success in multiple positions of increasing scope and responsibility, with a significant duration of experience and expertise spanning the full qualifications of this role
• Open to integrating models from multiple platforms into one fully integrated performance and operations model
• Understanding of propeller propulsion systems
• Strong analytical capabilities
• Strong synthesis and communications abilities
• Strong initiative and autonomy, pro-active in decision making
Field of studies :
Aerospace Engineering, Engineering
