SPOTLIGHT INTERVIEW WITH JACOB JEWISON, ELECTRICAL ENGINEER AT NIDEC-KATO ENGINEERING

A conversation with Jacob Jewison, Electrical Engineer at Nidec-Kato Engineering

Jacob graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering, and has 6 years of experience with Nidec-Kato Engineering working as an Electrical Engineer.

1. What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?

I hope the audience will gain a better understanding of what certain machine characteristics are as well as what factors drive them.

2. What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?

I look forward to discussing reactance requirements and motor starting.

3. What do you enjoy most about your role?

I most enjoy when a customer comes to us with a requirement that hasn’t been solved before, and I get to develop a new design that will fulfil the requirement.

4. How did you get into the industry?

I’ve had an interest in electricity since the 4th grade when in science class we made simple circuits using batteries, switches, light bulbs and motors. This interest led me to pursue a career as an electrician after high school.  Wanting to learn more about electricity, after a couple years I decided to go to college for electrical engineering.  After my first year of college it was my experience as an electrician that landed me an internship here at Kato in the insulation lab building and testing sample coils.

5. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?

My favourite place in the world is out on the hiking trails near Lake Superior in Northern Minnesota, because it’s great to get away from the technology from time to time.

Join Jacob Jewison on the webinar entitled ‘Generator Jargon‘ Nidec – Kato Engineering & Leroy-Somer on 16 July at 3PM London/10AM New York.
