HVEMB Report Summary

Project ID: 686085
Funded under: H2020-EU.

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - HVEMB (High Voltage Direct Current Distribution Electrical Master Box)

Reporting period: 2016-04-01 to 2017-09-30

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

The main problem addressed is the way to save weight anf increase reliability of high voltage distribution equipments.

It stands as the right opportunity for LIE to put all aspects of its strategic choices into perspective and bring innovative solutions to the aeronautics market.

The objective through this project is to develop the next generation of Power Distribution Unit based on a new generation of high voltage commutation devices, themselves based on electromechanical and electronic switching components.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

The main component of HVDC distribution equipment is the HVDC contactor, high level of maturity is reach so far, other components : sensors, electronic board management, has also been assessed through demonstrators.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

The HVDC hybrid contactor prove the high number of cycles reach and the important overloads level withstand in comparison with off the shelf components.
The HVDC embedded technologies are linked to HVDC batteries present from electrical car to aircraft, the next revolution will come with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and the HVDC technologies developed in HVEMB project fits with all these needs.
Our company will be involved in working with other partners, such as Airbus Helicopter. This will ensure increasing the knowledge into the HVDC domain, as well as fully understanding the market needs in terms of type and range of components.
The consequences is to reach new markets that obviously will bring employement.
