About Me

My name is Jonathan Mash and I was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. I am currently working for Amazon Prime Air helping develop their novel drone technology.

In 2013, I completed an M.Sc. Electrical Engineering program at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. I was part of the ePOWER laboratory under the supervision of Dr. Praveen Jain. I have several publications in the field of Wind Turbine Control. Prior to that, I completed a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering also at Queen’s University.

Recent Experience

SPARQ Systems – Monitoring and Control

Lead Product Development Engineer November 2010 - Present

Worked with a team of extremely talented individuals to try and make the world a greener place. At SPARQ, we developed microinverters and monitoring equipment for the solar PV industry. I lead the team that developed two generations of monitoring equipment. For the first generation, I developed a low-power ARM based communication hub and software to interface with microinverters over the power-lines (Power Line Communication). I also oversaw and developed specifications for the associated monitoring portal. For the second generation, I started from the ground up with an all new single-board computer running full-blown linux at its core. This time, communication with the inverters was done through the use of an advanced Zigbee implementation. I oversaw the development of both the hardware and software aspects of the product as well as the associated cloud-based monitoring portal. Over the years, I was also involved and lead several special projects working with external parties.

ePOWER – Centre for Energy and Power Electronics Research

Engineering Research Assistant 2009 - 2013

Working with some of Canada’s top researchers, I developed novel non-linear control strategies for PMSG connected wind turbines. Furthermore, I developed a wind turbine emulator using an induction motor connected to a permanent magnet synchronous generator for use in research activities. I also researched and designed a medium-power front-end converter for telecommunications equipment using simulation tools.
