innovative ICE Protection And Shielding System for HLFC Demonstrator

Project description

Resolving space constraints of more-electric aircraft with innovative wiring systems

The aviation industry has made a commitment to revolutionise energy systems on board to reduce the environmental impact of aircraft. In future more-electric aircraft, mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic systems will be replaced by electrical systems. There are many benefits to this, but the space constraints should also be considered. For example, classic IPS and electromagnetic shielding systems will have to co-exist with the hybrid laminar flow control (HLFC) system in a limited space. The EU-funded ICEPASS project plans to develop a wire harness – assembly of electrical cables – for keeping power and monitoring systems of HLFC organised. Researchers will explore an innovative flat harness concept that could solve the space problem in the leading edge where the HLFC system operates.
