a) very high power linear power amplifiers to 600 Kva for vibration test and AC pure mains supply, etc. employing air cooled, air blast cooled and vapour cooled thermionic valves, air blast and water cooled silicone power transistors and MOSFET based power designs and
b) high power single and three phase AC output transconductance amplifiers for electricity meter test, high power relay test, Hall effect transducer production test, etc.
This includes all aspects of the mechanical and wiring design of conventional 19" equipment practice from unit sub-rack to multi-bay and beyond to larger constructs as well as of the actual electronic/electrical content.
Zero failure rate on all these designs and products made in the last 30 years,
c) underwater lighting design for swimming pools and water features, etc. using high power LED's and,
d) acoustic design for high power audio at infrasonic to ultrasonic frequencies, in air or underwater.
Understanding of high reliability design techniques as applied to high power design and modern power LED lighting design.
Experienced in the creation and editing of technical articles, product and service manuals, etc. using word processing.
Fast, lateral thinker with two patents to my name.
Willing to undertake product prototyping and "proof of idea" work under a confidentiality document and, in conjunction with experienced family members, able to do compact, fast loading web site design and graphics, (using php or other formats), graphic and product design and mechanical designs of electronic/electrical sheet metal work and advanced mechanical components, including for professional motor sport use, using 3-D CAD under my direction (principally using the latest edition of SOLID EDGE, although we are experienced in the older programs such as Autocad as well).
This includes checking of a designed component's dimensions vs. mould dimensioning for moulded components such as electronic housings, to ensure correct mould release first time.
I am a VAT registered sole trader with large, secure premises, test equipment and basic machining facilities, etc. and am used to dealing with large "name" UK manufacturing companies and signing nondisclosure documents.
Area Covered: Sussex and Kent
Work Experience Summary: Over 40 years design, development and testing of high power, low voltage, high voltage and high current electrical & electronic systems and subsystems, including the mechanical design aspects, from board to rack/frame level and technical writing of manuals, parts and spares lists, etc.
Bespoke very high power test systems in place for production test of single & three phase mains electricity meters, (OFFER \"approved\"), Hall effect current transducers to 1000A single pass, water cooled, silicone power transistor, linear high power vibration test amplifiers to 60 Kw RMS. Hundreds of OEM linear MOSFET industrial power amplifier modules in 300 w to 1 Kw RMS power range in field operation supplying clean mains to safety critical computers and systems in oil and gas fields & platforms around the globe. (All the above operate 24/7 and with a zero failure rate since installation over a 16 year plus period)
EHT power supply and vacuum system power electronics design.
Audio PA and guitar amplifier design, sub-woofer design including for swimming pool, outdoor and underwater applications..
Lighting design using high power LED\'s for underwater and sauna use.
NB. The rate does depend upon the work requested and the size of the project and is negotiable.
