Abstract:

Future more electric aircraft MEA will require electric actuation systems for control surfaces, and engine controls. Electric motors, drive electronics, and mechanisms are essential elements of aircraft actuation in MEAs that incorporate electromagnetic actuators EMA. High temperature environments that are experienced in aircraft applications place demands on actuator components, materials, and insulation systems, and these higher temperatures dictate the use of new technologies and materials. RCT Systems has experience with custom motors, high-power high-density electronics, and high-temperature oil-free bearing systems. RCT is also able to evaluate, design, and implement custom high-temperature motor and mechanical systems.
