"The Smart Operation on Ground (SOG) concept has appeared at the end of the 60’s, but technology was not efficient enough to allow introducing the concept. It is not anymore the case, and this project aims to demonstrate the feasibility of an electrical solution.
SOG PEERS includes basic functions like forward and backward motion; moreover, it includes electrical braking, cruise control and energy braking recovery and storage. Stored energy will be managed to be used for example to supply emergency braking or emergency Landing Gear Extension Retraction System.
ADENEO has been working in different fields for motor control and has developed asynchronous and synchronous controllers hardware and software with the associated certification level in DO178 and D254 (currently for A350 XWB A/C). ADENEO is used to design embedded power converters. Starting 20 years ago with the railway industry, ADENEO brought it power electronic knowledge to aircraft industry to design converters for aircraft electrical networks.
ADENEO has got significant experience in energy braking recovery, especially in light railway industry. By developing and testing embedded and stationary solutions, ADENEO has built strong experience, and now manages mature solutions that can be brought to aeronautic field. In railway industry, ADENEO has been selected to present NEOGREEN, its braking energy recovery product at the international Braking Energy Recovery workshop in Bielefeld of Ticket To Kyoto association in 2011. An embedded demonstrator has been tested in commercial service in Paris during 2 years, and a first NEOGREEN has been installed beginning of 2011 in Lyon tramway network.
Based on this, and according to short time development schedule, ADENEO will be able to provide a TRL4 demonstrator, based on internal COTS specially upgraded to fit to SOG PEERS project environment."
