Abstract:

Electromechanical actuation of primary flight control surfaces has been demonstrated by the development of an integrated rotary hinge-line dual- redundant actuation unit. The characteristics of the developed hardware closely correlate with the design predictions. A digital computer program was developed to simulate dynamic operation of the unit based upon the known equipment characteristics. The system simulation results showed that the electromechanical actuation unit can meet selected performance goals. Component compatibility, system function, performance capabilities, and redundant operation were demonstrated using the laboratory hardware and computerized simulation analyses. Author
