Candidate will be developing an automated setup for grid-tied inverter testing of UL1741 SA smart grid functionality, based upon a pre-existing test platform using SunSpec SVP which executes Python scripts to issue commands to test equipment to perform grid interactive tests and simultaneous data collection. We would expect this candidate to work with hardware, and other test engineers to get the equipment configured and working in a test bed for product compliance testing in engineering.
