Business Information:

The Hitachi Energy Indian Operations Center (INOPC) is a competence center with around 1500 skilled engineers who focus on tendering, engineering, planning, procurement, functional system testing, installation supervision and commissioning. However, over the last decade, it has evolved to become the largest engineering hub. The India Operations Centre is a key aspect of the Power Grids business Power Up transformation program. The INOPC team at Chennai supports Hitachi Energy’s units in more than 40 countries across a wide portfolio of all the four business units in Power Grid business. To date, the team has executed engineering and commissioning for projects in more than 80 countries.

You will be part of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current), a business unit within Hitachi Energy located in Chennai. The unit develops, manufactures and sells DC transmission systems on a global market. The HVDC technology is used to transmit electricity over long distances and for power transmission via submarine cables. HVDC is also used to connect power systems. In this role you will design authority for an engineering discipline with low to medium complexity. Complete assignments on small projects or portions of larger projects, cost-effectively and in accordance with contract specifications, quality standards and safety requirements.


  • Be responsible for evaluating the harmonic performance and, if needed, design filters to meet the project requirements.

  • This involves also to evaluate and influence how the HVDC converter control affects the harmonics. This is performed by doing advanced system simulations of the HVDC converters, connected AC networks and DC transmission links.

  • Be involved in the designing of HVDC converter stations until verification measurements at site.

  • Develop design tools that improve our studies and processes.

  • Work with land-based converter stations as well as off-shore converter stations, e.g. for connection of wind parks.

  • Cooperate, both internally within and outside of our department and externally, with customers and sub suppliers. Here, negotiation skills will be useful.
