The majority of present day electrical generators are rotary devices. Such generators usually comprise a conventional combustion engine (petrol/diesel) which is used to drive the rotor of a permanent magnet alternator. However, it has been demonstrated that a free piston engine* driving a linear generator, can achieve greater power densities than a conventional electrical generator of the same generating capacity.
* an engine whose connecting rod simply moves in a linear, reciprocating manner
You should have a strong interest in Research and Development (R&D) with focus on power generation technology. You thrive in a highly dynamic innovative environment with the opportunity to work among other engineers where you will take responsibility for your own tasks whilst interacting with other engineers.
