EPOCAL: an Electrical POwer Center for Aeronautical Loads

Objective

The main objective of the current proposal is the development of an Electrical Power Center (EPC) integrated with a devoted Control Console (CC), enhanced with advanced electrical power management strategies. The proposal is based on the following keypoints:

1) an Electrical Power Center equipped with Solid State Power Controllers (SSPCs) for both energy management and protection functions will be implemented. Most recent technologies will be included in the power center, referring to the recent state-of-art, in order to guarantee compliance with selected aeronautical standards. The SSPC component will be ad-hoc designed for the implementation of both the power management strategies and protection functionalities.

2) a firmware will be implemented for monitoring and supervision of the EPC, particularly referring to Electrical-Energy Management (E-EM) concept verification. The EPC will be equipped with a software able to perform several analysis, referring to preprocessing (i.e. configurations pretesting), (i.e. monitoring and energy management logics implementation) and postprocessing (i.e. plotting and comparison between measured and simulated quantities).

The proposed Project follows a typical workflow based on requirements analysis, specs derivation, design phase, physical implementation, testing phase, results analysis versus simulations and final equipment validation.
