1 ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS AIAA TEAM 1 VT AIAA TEAM 1 1

2 Electrical Systems in Aircraft Avionics Hydraulics Environmentalcontrol Lighting Subsystems VT AIAA TEAM 1 2

3 Electrical System Composition Batteries Alternators/Generators Transformer-rectifiers APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) Electrical Controls Circuit Breakers Wires Ram Air Turbines VT AIAA TEAM 1 3

4 GENERATORS Usually produces AC current 115/220 V Most aircraft have two generators Generally a 3 phase, 400 HZ generator Large aircraft may have back-up generators VT AIAA TEAM 1 4

5 TRANSFORMER-RECTIFIERS Used to convert to DC current Typically 28V VT AIAA TEAM 1 5

6 BATTERIES Power APUs Emergency locator transmitters Starting general aviation aircraft VT AIAA TEAM 1 6

7 APU The APU is used to start the engine and provide ground power Can provide in-flight emergency power Can be continuously operated if needed Most common is the jet-fuel APU Small jet engine Requires inlet and exhaust, both facing up to minimize noise Inlet must be in high pressure, exhaust in low pressure area Must be fire-walled High maintenance, so easy access is essential Must be considered early in design because of these reasons Usually located near tail for transports and fuselage for fighters VT AIAA TEAM 1 7

8 RAM-AIR TURBINES Used in some cases to generate power Windmill is inserted in slipstream Can be used in emergencies VT AIAA TEAM 1 8

9 AVIONICS Powered by generators and transformerrectifiers Include radios, instruments, navigational aids, flight control computers, radar, infrared, anti-icing, detectors, sensors, and other mission-specific equipment Integral part of design in terms of placing, weight, and costs VT AIAA TEAM 1 9

10 CATEGORIES OF AVIONICS Communication and Navigation Mission Equipment Vehicle Management VT AIAA TEAM 1 10

11 COMMUNICATION AND NAVIGATION Radios Weather Autopilot Radar, air-to-air and air-to-ground Infrared seekers and sensors Aircraft identification, friend and enemy GPS VT AIAA TEAM 1 11

12 MISSION EQUIPMENT Gun/Missile aiming and control Electronic Stealth VT AIAA TEAM 1 12

13 VEHICLE MANAGEMENT Necessary for flight Fly-by-wire systems and flight control systems Unstable aircraft stabilized by computers and actuators Pilots give suggestions and computer allows them Fly-by-optics Faster data transmission Immunity from electromagnetic interference Systems to dampen flutter, suppress oscillations, re-distribute lift over the wing VT AIAA TEAM 1 13

14 VEHICLE MANAGEMENT con t. VT AIAA TEAM 1 14

15 DETERMINING SIZE AND WEIGHT General aviation FAA regulates what radios, navigational aids, and equipment that can be used for certain operations Becomes a matter of picking from a catalog Industry/commercial aircraft Military In-house expert can size avionics and electronics This expert communicates with manufacturers Usually state of the art systems, so little may be known Drawings might not even exist Estimates are required and usually made by in-house expert VT AIAA TEAM 1 15

16 A NOTE ON AVIONICS WEIGHT Devices are smaller, but quality and quantity are greater. Previous weight estimates are often used in design so when new advances are made, there is usually extra space/weight. This extra space/weight has been used for more advanced features and not just eliminated VT AIAA TEAM 1 16

17 NEW DEVELOPMENTS Electrical actuators Replace hydraulics Similar to RC models Small electric motors drive control surfaces Comparable in weight to hydraulics but faster and more reliable Electric brakes Replace hydraulics Like disc brakes on cars Run by electric motor Faster response Can be used to prevent skids more reliably Comparable in weight to hydraulics VT AIAA TEAM 1 17

18 NEW DEVELOPMENTS con t. Miniaturization of electronics Smaller - More volume for payload Lighter - More weight for payload Allows for components to be embedded in aircraft skin Allows for smaller aircraft UAVS Advances in computers LEDs Advanced auto-pilots and flight controls Can fly more unstable aircraft Pilot may not be necessary Bugs in computer code may lead to problems Light emitting diodes Brighter, easier to read, longer lasting displays and lights VT AIAA TEAM 1 18

19 NEW ADVANCES AT WORK Example: Honeywell More Electric Architecture, MEA Basically a combination of the ideas above Elimination of pneumatics and hydraulics Lighter Easier to maintain VT AIAA TEAM 1 19

20 ELECTRICAL DESIGN Size Weight Where will it go? Wiring long wires will lead to signal loss and more weight Environmental effects lighting and electromagnetic effects VT AIAA TEAM 1 20

21 AIAA Tactical STOL Transport Will require most of what was presented APU Batteries Generators Transformer-rectifiers Avionics VT AIAA TEAM 1 21

22 Forestry UAV Require advanced electronics and avionics Could use electrical motors for propulsion Require batteries or some way to generate power in flight VT AIAA TEAM 1 22

23 Human Powered Aircraft None for final design For model: Electric motor Servos VT AIAA TEAM 1 23

24 Next 10 years Fuel cells Cleaner, quieter, more efficient Won t replace engines anytime soon, but have applications in APU Electric propulsion Eventually all electric aircraft? VT AIAA TEAM 1 24

25 QUESTIONS?? VT AIAA TEAM 1 25
