  • Electrical monitoring for fault detection in an EMA

    Publication Year: 2010, Page(s):4 - 9
    Cited by:  Papers (17)

    The concept of a "More Electric Aircraft" (MEA) leads, among other actions, to the substitution of hydraulic-based actuators for Electro-Mechanical Actuators (EMA). Removal of the engine hydraulic pumps requires fully-operative electrical power actuators and mastery of the flight control architecture. However, unexpected faults and lack of safety hinder the massive use of EMAs in flight control ac... View full abstract»

    Recent progress in radar techniques and systems led to the development of an interferometric radar, suitable to the application in dynamic testing and vibration monitoring of civil engineering structures. The main characteristic of the new radar system is the possibility of simultaneously measuring the (static or dynamic) displacement of several points of a structure with high sensitivity. This de...

    The history of development of monopulse radar in the US is reviewed herein. Significant techniques that permitted monopulse tracking radars to achieve accurate tracking with high efficiency are discussed, including sum-and-difference antenna feed networks, multi-horn and multi-mode feeds, precision mechanical pedestals, and space-fed arrays. The discussion concentrates on surface-based radars, but... View full abstract»

    When evaluating the performances of radar waveforms, it is crucial to understand how the signal is affected by multiple interactions with the environment and the system hardware. Analysis of complex radar systems, such as multistatic and netted designs (see Figure 1) is often intractable without the application of a dedicated radar simulation system. Recent research into radar simulation has focus... View full abstract»

    IMA Resource Allocation process needs to be thought out prior to beginning of an IMA development. The aircraft functions that are being hosted on the IMA architecture will need to have early system engineering/modeling done. Based on this early work, allocations/budgets need to be determined and the IMA system architecture modeled to determine the right amount of IMA shared resources that will nee... View full abstract»

    Design for Testability (DFT) has been accepted as a cost-saving approach in many applications. The rationale has been demonstrated in several papers by calculations showing how DFT benefits derived outweigh costs. In those cases, benefits dealt with cost savings in producing, testing, and deploying it product. Apparently, such benefits are bound by an upper limit as the savings could not be greate...
