n Job Description n


nPower Solutions International (PSI) is a leading cleantech manufacturer and supplier of off-road and on-road engine power solutions. PSI provides integrated, turnkey power solutions to original equipment manufacturers in the industrial, construction, agricultural, and on-road markets and offers a complete line of certified engines.

We are currently looking for a team player with proven experience as a Calibration Engineer for our On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) Calibration Engineer role in Burr Ridge IL.


nPosition Summary:n


The OBD Calibration Engineer develops OBD calibrations and control system design for spark-ignited internal combustion engines (ICEs) on conventional and alternative fuels. This would include operating, manipulating, and testing engines in-laboratory and in-vehicle or equipment, analyzing data, and manipulating control systems to optimize the performance of the engine and OBD monitors. The position involves the development of on-board diagnostic calibrations and controls (OBD), base engine performance and emissions calibrations, and at times may require supporting application-level calibrations. The position also entails supporting various degrees of engine testing and supporting engineering teams with mechanical, electronic, and electro-mechanical component selection.


nDuties & Responsibilities:n



+ Develop OBD calibrations for ICE platforms.

+ Support OBD project plans including DVP&R for all calibration development and validation aspects.

+ Support of customer calibrations for OBD related issues in the field during product development, validation, and in-production.

+ Support in-vehicle and in-equipment OBD calibration development internally, at external test facilities, and at customer locations.

+ Responsible for authoring Design Verification Plan & Report (DVP&R) documents for internal and external OBD calibration development projects.

+ Responsible for supporting or conducting ICE tests and analyzing, reporting, and presenting of data to internal management and customers for OBD calibration development purposes.
