Job Description


Testing & Commissioning Field Engineering


At ComEd, we know that a cleaner and brighter future is in our hands. That's why we're looking for people like you to join our team: people who have the power to make a difference and people who want to power the future.


If you enjoy working in the field and troubleshooting substation equipment, then this is the job for you.  The position involves work in one of ComEd’s four regions (Chicago, North, South, and West), includes a take home vehicle, and the opportunity for overtime pay.

Testing and Commissioning engineers are a front-line field engineering workforce that commissions, maintains, and troubleshoots transmission and distribution level protection and control systems inside ComEd substations.  System and equipment types include protective relays, SCADA, substation automation, power and control equipment, fiber-optic, power line carrier, and revenue metering.

Commissioning new equipment includes creating commissioning plans, writing livening procedures, creating and running test plans, and analyzing test results compared to expected values.  The engineers also troubleshoot and perform field investigations for malfunctioning power equipment, system events and protective relay miss-operations. They then support corrective maintenance to repair any identified equipment issues.  Lastly, the Testing and Commissioning engineers perform preventive maintenance on protection system components and SCADA.

Testing and Commissioning engineers are the technical authority in the field.  They provide leadership by directing and supporting substation maintenance and contractor crews on work associated with these systems.  The Testing and Commissioning organization also plays a critical role in substation outage / work planning, maintaining engineering drawings, relay/SCADA database data entry, NERC/CIP audit support, supporting the engineering PM & CM maintenance programs, and is a strong advocate of the ComEd Safety culture.





ComEd is seeking all levels of Testing & Commissioning Engineers and Technicians.


ComEd is the largest utility in Illinois with a service territory that extends from Lake Michigan across the northern third of Illinois.


If you are a problem-solver, enjoy field engineering, are collaborative, and want to positively impact the community by keeping the lights on, this is the career for you! In addition, Testing & Commissioning Field Engineers get a company vehicle and the opportunity for extended hours pay.


There are openings in ComEd’s four regions (Chicago, North, South, or West) and you can experience urban, suburban, countryside or a combination.


This position supports the Utility’s transmission system and, at times, may require extended hours for coverage or troubleshooting during storms and emergencies
