We are looking for a Generation Monitoring and Diagnostic Analyst to work in iPower Centre under Power System Engineering Department (PSED).
PSED is responsible for providing and managing highly technical and specialized engineering services to support the safe and reliable operation of Saudi Aramco electrical power systems generation, transmission and distribution networks. iPower is monitoring and diagnostic (M&D) canter that will deploy the artificial intelligence tools to monitor the whole value chain of power systems. For Saudi Aramco power plants, the iPower will closely monitor the performance of the plants to enhance the plant reliability and detect anatomize before they aggravate to failure. The iPower canter will be the hub of intelligent solutions to enhance the overall system performance.
You will be responsible to for M&D power plant equipment and thermal performance issues for generation fleets within Saudi Aramco facilities using advanced artificial Intelligence (AI) based analytical tools. You will utilize advanced pattern recognition (APR) and thermal modeling software to identify and analyze potential failure, degradation anomalies, and efficiency gaps. You will interface with plant operations as well as subject matter experts to further assess detected anomalies, identify and classify the associated risks to the plant, issue recommendations, and follow up to ensure resolutions are tracked through completion.
As a successful candidate you should hold a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent. A degree or certification in the AI-based tools for pattern recognition application will be highly valued.
You must have a minimum of 5 years’ experience in supporting advanced condition monitoring and diagnosis software for power plants monitoring by analyzing assets data generated from analytical tools and working experience on condition monitoring and diagnostic technologies.
You should have working experience in rotating equipment, power plants and combined cycle power plants.
Duties and Responsibilities
You will be required to perform the following:
Develop, maintain, and use advanced pattern recognition assets models and associated data to detect pattern deviation in the operating behavior of plant equipment and systems.
Daily monitoring of power plant critical components that are covered by the APR tool.
Respond, evaluate and prioritize alarms for generated by the APR tools and interact with power plant personnel to provide recommendations to optimize plant equipment and systems.
Communicate and interface with company Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to further assess equipment anomalies detected by the APR software. Communicate detected anomalies to power plant point of contact for further investigation at site.
Identify and classify associated risks to the plant by analyzing the data generated by the APR tools, provide recommendations to mitigate risks as proposed by the APR software, and follow up to ensure implementation.
Capture and quantify the software catches and the associated avoided costs to expose the value M&D canter.
