Fault tolerant electromechanical actuators for aircraft applications

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The evolutionary trend in the field of aeronautical applications involves the expanding use of electromechanical actuators in place of the traditional actuators More Electric Aircraft, with the objective of reducing weight and size of the apparatus, increase efficiency and reduce the cost of maintenance. The concerns related to these developments relate to the limited robustness to the failure of conventional electric motors and their electronic control which hamper the use in sensitive applications in terms of service guarantee and security of the fligh. The research involves the study of new types of motors and "multiphase" drives based on permanent magnet synchronous or reluctance structure. The aim is the realization of actuators able to guarantee the operational performance even in case of faults, according to the specifications stated by the manufacturers of aircraft.
