Cabin pressure control system for tomorrow’s tiltrotor aircraft
Tiltrotor aircraft operate at altitudes where pressurisation is required to ensure the comfort and safety of crew and passengers. Conventional systems on aeroplanes depend on bleed air taken from engine compressors to pressurise the fuselage and operate air conditioning systems. However, this negatively affects fuel efficiency. The EU-funded ELECTRA project will design architecture for a bleedless cabin pressurisation system (CPS) and develop, manufacture, test and validate CPS hardware that is appropriate for flight testing on the next-generation tiltrotor technology demonstrator. To do so, it will create a simulation platform, carry out system- and equipment-level trade-off analyses and produce equipment hardware. The project should contribute to the Clean Sky 2’s Joint Technical Programme objectives.
