Estimation models for the preliminary design of electromechanical actuators

Abstract : This article presents estimation models for the model-based preliminary design of electromechanical actuators. Models are developed to generate all the parameters required by a multi-objective design, from a limited number of input parameters. This is achieved using scaling laws in order to take advantage of their capability to reflect the physical constraints driving the actuator's component sizing. The proposed approach is illustrated with the major components that are involved in aerospace electromechanical actuator design. The established scaling laws provide the designer with parameters needed for integration into the airframe, power sizing, thermal balance, dynamics, and reliability. The resulting estimation models are validated with industrial data.
