Sizing of actuators for flight control systems and flaps integration in RAPID
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
The architecture of the flight control system, essentialfor all flight operations, has significantlychanged throughout the years. The first part ofthe work consists of a preliminary sizing modelof an EHA and an EMA. The second part of thework consists of the development of parametricCAD models of different types of flaps and theirintegration in RAPID. This thesis addresses theactuation system architecture of what it is namedas more electric aircraft with electrically poweredactuators. This consists of the development offlexible parametric models of flight control surfaces,being able to adapt to any wing geometryand their automatic integration in RAPID. Furthermore,it represents a first step in the developmentof an automatic tool that allows the user tochoose any possible wing control surface configuration.
