Employment Type



The role:
Tesla is looking for a driven, motivated and collaborative applicant to support Tesla Energy’s Megapack projects. This role will be working with our team in Melbourne focusing on the Victorian Big Battery (VBB) and Transgrid Megapack projects. This position is focused on power systems stability modelling and analysis. The intern is expected to demonstrate a solid theoretical background on EMT and dynamic modelling of power systems, renewable energy resources, and converter interfaced devices. The intern should have very strong and hands-on experience using any positive sequence tools like (PSSE/DIgSILENT/PSLF) and EMT tools (preferably PSCAD) for dynamics/transient simulations. The intern will focus mostly on modelling solar PV and battery energy storage systems in any of these software utilizing Python interfaces,running simulations, and analysing the impact of these resources on stability of grids and microgrids.


  • Work closely with project engineers and power systems engineers.
  • Perform EMT and RMS dynamics simulations for battery energy storage systems.
  • Perform model benchmark and overlay.
  • Prepare generator connection study reports• Prepare commissioning hold point test reports.


  • Currently working towards a Masters or advanced degree in a relevant program such as Electrical Engineering or Mechatronics, with a focus on Power and Energy Systems.
  • Practical experience with modelling renewables in any positive sequence or EMT tool.
  • Practical experience using Python.
  • Must be self-managed and committed to working in a fast-paced environment.
  • Prior practical experience in conducting utility transmission interconnection studies for renewable and energy storage projects is a plus.
  • Prior experience with PSSE User Written Model is a plus• Analytical, investigation and problem-solving skills.
