The Functional Safety & Software department is accountable for end-to-end system design of turbine safety functions, including implementation of safety software. Based on risk assessments, we identify the safety functions needed, work out the safety integrity requirements, build up the safety system architecture, and settle the HW and SW requirements. Using a model-based approach, we implement and test safety software in the ANSYS SCADE environment and verify the system integration in a combination of test environments. Also, we design and develop adjacent software modules for securing operability and serviceability.


As control software engineer you will be responsible for designing, implementing, and testing the interface between the turbine safety system and the general turbine control system, and for developing test suites for end-to-end testing of the safety system in test environments ranging from PC simulators, HWIL test walls, full-size test rigs, and real-life wind turbines.
