Watch our webinar on real-time simulation for airplane electrical systems. The RTDS Simulator performs real-time electromagnetic transient (EMT) simulation, which allows for efficient and detailed representation of the electric power generation and distribution systems of both conventional and more-electric aircraft (MEA). Real-time simulation also enables the closed-loop testing of control systems such as aircraft GCU, ECS, and APU control, minimizing the risk of device misoperation and failure in this critical environment.
Our demonstration shows the simulation of the AC and DC components of a conventional aircraft electrical system. Learn how the RTDS Simulator’s new Universal Converter Model allows for more accurate, stable, and accessible simulation of onboard power electronics, including a transformer rectifier unit (TRU), dual-active bridge for DC bus voltage conversion, and inverter-driven loads. Take a look at various other models available in RSCAD that support the simulation of aircraft electrical systems, including electric machines (synchronous generators, permanent magnet synchronous machines, induction machines, DC machines), linear and non-linear loads, and batteries.
