Smart Electrical Power Distribution Centre

Objective

The SEPDC project will conceive, design and manufacture an Electrical Test Bench (ETB) to be used by airframers to support verification activities over different aircraft electrical architectures (Green Regional Aircraft, Green Business Jet and Green rotorcraft). The SEPDC project will feature a smart HVDC network in charge of the electrical power distribution with the capability to integrate different electrical starter-generators and power-end consumers. The HVDC network will be based on a modular and reconfigurable architecture to meet the variety of different electrical aircraft topologies. Thus, the key connection elements both for generators and loads will be easily exchangeable electromechanical components refer to as RACKS.
The innovative concept of smart electrical power distribution system (SEPDC) to develop will be based on synchronized measurements and controls of contactors from a single control unit integrated in a single engineering interface.
