AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL MONITORING & FAULT DETECTION

George Kusic

Abstract

Fault detection and electrical system monitoring (management) for aircraft/spacecraft dc or 400 Hz electrical systems is presented. Real-time ‘snapshot’ data is collected from current and voltage measurement transducers on radial or loop aircraft electrical system and introduced into a State Estimator. The State Estimator ‘smoothes’ the data, detects bad transducers, and calculates the best estimate of the voltage and phase angle at busses of the network, i.e., the ‘state’ of the network. Experimental results of estimation and fault detection are presented.
