Aircraft electrical system simulation

Create a more electric aircraft by optimizing its electrical network and accounting for thermal integration. Simcenter helps you design reliable generators, electromechanical and electro hydrostatic actuators, and analyze the impact of network reconfiguration in case of failure. Using co-simulation with Simulink, you can integrate generator control units with high-fidelity multiphysics models. Pre-processing and post-processing tools, like electro-hydrostatic actuator (EHA) and electro-mechanical actuator (EMA) parameter optimization, fast Fourier transform (FFT), and linear analysis features, help you succeed in certification tests.
