Abstract

The application of more electrified systems in aircraft is required to achieve the target of a more sustainable aviation industry. This in turn relies on the development of new electromechanical devices to ensure the reliability of critical aircraft functions during flight. The aim of this work is to develop and test a device capable of protecting permanent magnet (PM) generators from damage, thus enabling the practical use of such high power density generators in aircraft while eliminating their inherent vulnerability to sustained electrical faults. A novel electromechanical actuator concept for decoupling a PM generator from an aircraft gas turbine engine is introduced and experimentally validated. The proposed concept combines a coaxial magnetic coupling with an electromagnetic actuator (EA), allowing for rapid disconnection in the case of electrical fault detection. The 2-D finite-element magnetic analysis methodology employed in the design of the magnetic coupling and EA is validated with experiments which reveal that the peak torque results of the magnetic coupling are accurate to within a 2.5% error and the actuator can produce the 450-N pull force required for disconnection. The device is capable of operating at a maximum speed of 12 000 r/min and transmitting a load of 32 N⋅m .
