Simulating electrical faults within future aircraft networks

Norman, P. and Galloway, S.J. and McDonald, J.R. (2008) Simulating electrical faults within future aircraft networks. IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, 44 (1). pp. 99-110. ISSN 0018-9251

There is a growing need for accurate and time efficient modelling of electrical distribution networks within the aerospace industry, for which power electronic converters are an integral part. Simplifying converter models is necessary to improve simulation execution times, however many existing techniques do not necessarily give accurate results for all types of system level studies. This paper describes an alternative modelling approach to these, which provides accurate results and reduced simulation times for studies of electrical fault analyses.
