ACTUATION2015 simultaneously addresses the development and validation of standardised, modular and pooled EMA for all airframe systems. To achieve this ambitious objective, ACTUATION2015 gathers a critical mass of expertise in a wide range of skills (Component suppliers, Actuator suppliers, Actuation system supplier, A/C manufacturers, and Certification Authorities) and, especially for standardisation, the main stakeholders in the field.
The ACTUATION2015 Consortium has been drawn up in this spirit and the consortium gathers 54 partners. Goodrich Actuation Systems SAS, a UTC Aerospace Systems Company is coordinating the project.
The consortium includes:
The School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a world leader of teaching and research in the field of Electrical machines, Drives and Power Electronics. Research carried out within the School is found in many commercial products ranging from domestic appliances to automotive and aerospace systems.
Drawing on our considerable experience in fault tolerant systems for aerospace applications, we are developing fault tolerant electrical machine and drive topologies for the Actuation2015 programme.
