Career History

CG Global – East Providence, RI 2014 – May 2017

Senior Electrical Engineer

Performed designs of medium, high and extremely high voltage substations.

Designs are for voltages from 13.8 kV to 345 kV substations.

Developed complete System 1 and System 2 Protective Relay replacement for Bulk Power System stations throughout New England.

Also performed IEEE 485 DC voltage battery calculations.

Designs included protection and control for substation circuit breakers and substation power distribution, lighting, communication and fire alarm systems.

Designs also include Overcurrent Protective Device Coordination and full plans and specifications of new and modified electrical systems.

Design work included many substations in Rhode Island, South Eastern Massachusetts and Wisconsin.

Also performed forensic analysis on medium voltage, and high voltage substations.

During substation design, overcurrent protective device coordination and voltage drop calculations were performed for substations feeders.

Performed designs at Rhode Island Hospital for patient rooms, offices, and surgery suites. Designs included power distribution, lighting, communication and alarm systems.

Brown University – Providence, RI 2011 – 2014

Senior Electrical Engineer

Manage and control all phases of medium voltage and low voltage electrical power distribution on university campus in Providence, RI.

Designed and maintained four university substations at 11.2 kV including Overcurrent Protective Device coordination.

Designed classroom, auditoriums and living quarters with power distribution, lighting, communication and fire alarm systems.

Designed a project that included a complete campus wide digital electric meters on all facilities on campus.

Meters were accessible from Web based host program.

Performed design work at Rhode Island Hospital in areas for research.

U.S. Navy – Newport, RI 2006 – 2011

Electrical Engineer

Lead Project Engineer for Newport Naval Base $11 million sewer system upgrades.

Project included provisions for seventeen (17) sewage lift stations.

One station was provided with larger pumps using Full Voltage Non-Reversing (FVNR) starters and adjustable frequency drives, emergence diesel generators, total redundant PLC level control systems, and remote control by a base Landis and Gyr SCADA network.

Fault current study performed for all sewage lift stations.

Performed design to modifications of base substations including forensic analysis on medium voltage electrical power substations.

NSTAR – Yarmouth, MA 2001 – 2006

Senior Electrical Engineer

Manager of design engineers in the Yarmouth, Massachusetts NSTAR field office.

Responsible for engineering designs of substations in Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

Performed forensic engineering at multiple sites on Cape Cod.

Crosby Valve – Wrentham, MA 1994 – 2001

Senior Electrical Engineer

Supervisor for company Electrical R&D department.

Designed a device used for monitoring a pressure relief valve.

U.S. Patent Serial Number 6,283,138 for the Valve Monitoring Device was awarded to Crosby Valve, Michael A. Jones, PE inventor.

Exponent – Natick, MA 1991 - 1994

Electrical Engineer

Hired as an expert witness for a medium voltage switchgear manufacturer.

Case involved a 34.5 kV flash-over, resulting in a three-phase bolted fault, equipment damage, and serious personal injury.

Performed extensive research into areas of flash-over phenomena, proper medium voltage switchgear installation, NEC 70E and OSHA regulations for safe work practices.

Company was found not responsible for electrical explosion

Additional Professional Experience

Johnson & Wales University 1996 – 2004

Adjunct professor for electrical engineering, electronics with lab, physics and math classes at the Johnson & Wales University School of Technology.

Community College of Rhode Island 2017

Adjunct professor for Engineering Physics, including electrical materials, electronics with a lab.

East Providence Senior High School 2011 – 2012

Teacher for high school physics classes. Instructed Senior Honors level and Freshman Introductory level courses.
