Smart amplifier and a control box for fluidic actuators

For the qualification of AFC (Active Flow Control) systems for application on the pylon wing junction, wind tunnel test (W/T) and ground test (GT) campaigns will be performed using actuator systems based on piezoelectric transducer elements. One essential part of such an actuator system is a drive and control unit that can be used to drive and control full-scale actuators in a relevant environment during these test campaigns. The development work is focusing on the actuator hardware control as well as on the capability to integrate these low-level control systems in higher control levels.
