Reliability & Safety Enhanced Electrical Actuation System Architectures
The RESEARCH® project is the Russian-European coordinated completed R&D activity in the field of aerospace science and industry. The main project objective is the development of 'more- or all-electric' flight control actuation system with electrically powered actuators for the deflection of primary control surfaces of future airplanes. The elimination of onboard hydraulic power-network with the realization of such architecture potentially will result in the reduction of overall system weight, increasing A/C power and fuel efficiency as well as other outcomes (see Technical Innovations).
To archive this objective the consortium of seven partners from four countries representing big R&D centers, industry and universities with the wide range of expertise in the field of aerodynamics, flight controls, motor controls, electronics etc. was formed in the end of 2012 with the start of the project in 2013.
