Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a software student which can standardise our Power Management System (PMS) which has been used in several of our projects.

Affinity with a technical work environment, being able to think from the customer’s perspective. The internship will be from January 2021 until July/August in our office in Zwolle.


The PMS controls the stability of an electrical power plant or an electrical distribution network. It manages the optimum running condition of the generated electrical power versus the distributed consumers. The PMS does this by managing all incoming and outgoing feeders of the switchboard(s) controlled PLC’s via serial or hardware I/O connected to the High Voltage and/or Low Voltage switchgear.

The PMS can be split up in the following main functions:

  • Load sharing;
  • Load shedding based on;
  • Close inhibits of large consumers;
  • Start / stop generator sets;
  • Event & alarm logging;
  • Human Machine Interface.

At the end of the internship we ideally would like to see the following results:

  • Functional description of the PMS;
  • Detailed description from, which we can develop the software;
  • System overview block diagram;
  • Sales leaflet;
  • Pricing sheet.

What do we offer?

We offer a fun and challenging internship. We give you space to learn and to work independently. VONK has an interesting, informal work environment with its own workplace and inspiring colleagues.

We expect quite a bit from you, which is why we offer something: an internship compensation of € 450 gross per month and hopefully, the satisfaction of being successful.
