What are you working on during your internship?

I am defining an input parameter correlation between two current transformer models for protection relay testing.

What did you enjoy especially or what did surprise you? If you talk about OMICRON with a friend or relative, what would you share about your experience here?

One of the things I enjoy the most about OMICRON is its very friendly and casual work environment. Also, I was surprised on how much trust and responsibility I received as an intern. This was very gratifying and has continued to motivate me throughout my internship. In general I can say that working at OMICRON has been a unique and great experience for me. OMICRON has changed my perception of what an engineering company can do for its employees.

Why did you choose to work at OMICRON?

I applied to work for OMICRON due to the enthusiasm and interest shown by their representatives at the University of Maine Engineering Job Fair. I appreciated that they took the time to answer all of my questions, explain what the company does, and what the job would be like. The internship here seemed to present new challenges and an opportunity for me to continue learning, combined with a relaxed and supportive work environment.

What are you working on during your internship?

During my internship I have had the chance to work on various projects, learn how to operate some of the equipment, and see what working for OMICRON is all about. So far I have learned how to test current transformers with the CTA and CPC, how to test bushings with the CPC, how to test circuit breakers using the CIBANO, and how to perform a frequency response analysis with the FRANEO. Aside from the hands on experience, I have also had the opportunity to participate in various research projects, using data from previous tests to create information databases and studies that will make it easier to analyze test results and perform other tasks in the future.

What did you enjoy especially or what did surprise you? If you talk about OMICRON with a friend or relative, what would you share about your experience here?

The one thing I have enjoyed most about working at OMICRON is the work environment and the people I work with. They are always willing to answer questions or help with a problem, and everyone is treated as an equal. I have truly enjoyed my time working for OMICRON and look forward to continuing in the future.
