Ayuda cofinanciada por la Unión Europea a través del Programa Operativo FEDER de Crecimiento Inteligente 2014-2020
El proyecto SENSEROD se presenta con el objetivo de optimizar la gestión avanzada del tren de rodadura de vehículos ferroviarios, gracias al desarrollo de herramientas y soluciones de monitorización y diagnosis que permitan maximizar la vida útil y disponibilidad de los vehículos ferroviarios, así como incrementar su fiabilidad.
R&D Project TR4EMACS
This project has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 738110
AIRBUS est le topic manager de ce projet, mené par CETEST avec la collaboration du centre de recherche IK4-CEIT. L’objectif de ce projet est la conception, la fabrication et la mise en marche d’un banc d’essai flexible et complet pour l’évaluation et la validation complètes au sol d’actionneurs électromécaniques (EMA) et des unités de contrôle correspondantes, qui équiperont les gouvernes des ailes de l’avion de démonstration Clean Sky 2 Regional FTB2. Le banc d’essai permettra des essais complets au sol en conditions de vol réelles en termes de performance mécanique, performance des systèmes de contrôle des actionneurs électromécaniques, consommation électrique des actionneurs électromécaniques et son impact sur le réseau électrique CA.
TR4EMACS Power on and Customer Inspection at Purchaser Site (CIPS)
July 24th 2019
On Wednesday 24th of July 2019, the Ailerons and Flap-Tabs test benches were powered-on after integration at the Customer facilities. Previous to this step the Customer had carried out a thorough (CIPS) Inspection at Purchaser Site at their facilities. Personnel from different members composing TR4EMACS consortium were represented.
A thorough review was carried out by AIRBUS representatives and any adjustments required for the complete mechanical, electrical and hydraulic integration with their facilities was performed.
During this validation phase no major deviations were found and the test benches are currently fully operative.
TR4EMACS Customer Inspection at Supplier Site (CISS)
March 07th 2019
On Thursday 07th of March 2019, after completion of the Ailerons and Flap-Tabs test benches the Customer Inspection at Supplier Site (CISS) was successfully carried out at CETEST’s facilities in Beasain. Personnel from different members composing TR4EMACS consortium were represented.
A thorough review was carried out by AIRBUS representatives, including mechanical, electrical and hydraulic tests, as well as, a software and control review and performance tests.
During this validation phase no major deviations were found and the test benches were validated for delivery to the customer facilities for additional test and integration.
TR4EMACS Critical Design Review (CDR)
March 17th 2018
On Wednesday 17th of March 2018 the Critical Design Review (CDR) meeting for both ailerons and flap tab test rigs was successfully carried out. Personnel from different members composing TR4EMACS consortium were represented. CDR was carried out at AIRBUS facilities in Getafe.
During this meeting, requirements defined during the analysis of requirements task as well as all the actions considered on the PDR (Preliminary Design Review) were analyzed in detail in order to present the acquired solution.
After this meeting, the design was validated in order to begin the manufacturing of the test benches.
TR4EMACS Preliminary Design Review (PDR)
December 13th 2017
On Wednesday 13th of December 2017 the Preliminary Design Review (PDR) meeting for both ailerons and flap tab test rigs was successfully carried out. Personnel from different members composing TR4EMACS consortium were represented.
Main points discussed were focused on the validation of different solutions for the test rigs mechanical design, control systems hardware and software in order to reach the requirements specified by the Topic Manager. After technical discussion, next project steps were planned. This meeting was telematically developed.
TR4EMACS Kick Off Meeting (KOM)
September 13th 2017
On Wednesday 13th of September 2017, the Kick Off Meeting of the European project TR4EMACS (flexible test rigs of aircraft control surfaces powered by EMAs) took place at CETEST facilities (Spain) . Seven researchers from different members composing TR4EMACS consortium (AIRBUS, CEIT and CETEST) met in this Kick off Meeting to draw up the project and to set up the work plan for the following 42 months of research with the aim to design, manufacture and power on flexible test rigs for the on ground evaluation and validation of electromechanical actuators (EMAs) and corresponding control units that will equip the control surfaces of the wings of the Clean Sky 2 Regional FTB2 demonstrator. It lasted for one day, and every partners will be duly represented.
TEST-INN: INNOVATIVE LOAD APPLICATION & MONITORING SYSTEMS
This project has received funding from the Clean Sky 2 Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No-785393
AERNNOVA is the topic manager of this project, led by technical center IK4-IKERLAN with the collaboration of CETEST. The aim of this project is to develop an advanced test rig in order to demonstrate the torsional and bending stiffness of new HLFC (Hybrid Laminar Flow Control) leading edge configurations.
TEST-inn will help to reduce product development time risks and costs thanks to the design and manufacture of a test rig equipped with a combination of state of the art load application system in combination with the innovative monitoring methods proposed for first damage detection, stress-strain events, overloads and hot spot detection and quantification as well as overall deformation measurement.
Thanks to the high level of adaptability and customization the new test rig configuration proposed, the project will contribute to speed up the development, not only of the new the HLFC testing prototype manufactured by the topic manager, but also of new products development time.
