Job Type: Full Time

Description:

UTC Climate, Controls & Security is a leading provider of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, building controls and automation, and fire and security systems leading to safer, smarter, sustainable and high-performance buildings. UTC Climate, Controls & Security is a unit of United Technologies Corp., a leading provider to the aerospace and building systems industries worldwide.

Carrier is the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions. Carrier is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp., a leading provider to the aerospace and building systems industries worldwide.

UTC Climate, Control & Security is investing in next generation modeling solutions to predict thermodynamic performance of HVAC and refrigeration systems. Modeling software developed by the HVAC/R Design & Sales Software team is used globally for design of advanced, high efficiency, environmentally friendly air conditioning products and systems.

As we’re expanding our team located in Syracuse NY, we’re looking for a talented, highly motivated, and results-driven engineer with expertise in thermo-fluid modeling and simulation. The main responsibility of the ideal candidate will be development, software implementation and testing of physics-based models of HVAC/R components (e.g. heat exchangers, compressors, and pumps) and systems. Models will be part of our suite of model libraries and software tools.

RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Design and develop physics-based thermo-fluid models of HVAC components, including refrigerant properties and correlations

  • Modeling dynamic phenomena that drive cycle losses due to refrigerant migration and Multi-domain dynamic modeling

  • Integrate and compose component models into HVAC equipment system models

  • Perform model testing, calibration and validation based on experimental data

  • Work with UTC CCS engineering design centers globally on challenging modeling problems and promote the application of modeling and simulation techniques to support design decisions

  • Advance technology at UTC CCS for modeling of large scale systems integrated with models of control logic to be used for calculation of standard efficiency metrics

Qualification:

  • At least 5 years’ experience in steady-state and dynamic modeling of vapor-compression and/or power generation systems including related components such as heat exchangers, compression devices and associated controls

  • Good proficiency of Modelica. Knowledge of C#, VB6, MATLAB, Python, Java, C/C++ and Fortran is highly desirable

  • Knowledge of software programming techniques, including object oriented methodologies, version control management

  • Strong technical writing abilities to provide high quality documentation and standard work

  • Experience in the development, execution, and use of test plans and data to calibrate and validate physics-based models

  • Possess knowledge of numerical methods and solvers, optimization and robust design techniques

  • Follow Agile development process during daily work

  • Use methods for model convergence (scaling, smoothing), model diagnostics, debugging, initialization, identification of limits of performance

  • Be able to work as a part of a multidisciplinary team and in a global environment (our engineers are located in the US, Italy, France, Germany, China, India. We collaborate with research institutions worldwide)

  • Observe discipline with the development and adoption of standard development processes

  • Have a solid track record of working under pressure and focus on results

  • Solid technical writing, presentation and communication skills

Education:

  • Candidates must possess a MS or PhD in Mechanical, Industrial Engineering or Physics (MS with at least 5 years of industrial experience)
