Abstract

The simulation of a power system such as the More Electric Aircraft is a complex problem. There are conflicting requirements of the simulation, for example in order to reduce simulation run-times, power ratings that need to be established over long periods of the flight can be calculated using a fairly coarse model, whereas power quality is established over relatively short periods with a detailed model. An important issue is to establish the requirements of the simulation work at an early stage. This paper describes the modelling and simulation strategy adopted for the UK TIMES project, which is looking into the optimisation of the More Electric Aircraft from a system level. Essentially four main requirements of the simulation work have been identified, resulting in four different types of simulation. Each of the simulations is described along with preliminary models and results.
