Electrical Load Analysis (ELA) is important to ensure adequate power for the electrical systems during all phases of flight. For the most part, ELA today is done manually using spreadsheet-based or in-house tools that are not connected to aircraft design tools. In this paper, learn how teams are now able to effectively buy down program risks for electrical compliance by using Siemens Capital Load Analyzer Software, a modern method to meet the challenges of electrical type certification.
Aircraft Electrical Load Analysis Software
Digital Twin Technology allows aerospace electrical system designers to deploy an automated design-for-compliance methodology ensuring greater efficiency and improved product quality. The Capital Load assessment tool automatically extracts all electrical load analysis data into the user’s own reporting template for easy and efficient report generation.
The technology pulls data directly from the digital twin, enabling the user to see the impact of design changes at any time and any stage of the design process. Armed with the ability to generate real-time reports quickly, users can monitor design tasks and identify potential issues early in the design process to help mitigate program risk. Capital Load Analyzer reports compliance analysis results for each design configuration and variant.
Electrical Analysis of Flight Phases
Capital Load Analyzer is a true electrical collaboration platform that provides the digital continuity required across a broad range of critical tasks supporting electrical systems compliance and certification. The Siemens EWIS software tool allows engineers to verify designs and continuously keep track of all changes to ensure correct and safe operation of the aircraft, perform design analysis for each flight phase (ascent, descent, take off, landing and cruise) including load shedding for emergency conditions.
Benefits of Siemens Aircraft Capital Electrical Load Analysis Software
- Capital Load Analyzer is the industry first electrical systems technology that leverages automation and digital data continuity to facilitate regulatory compliance
- Program managers will be able to retire risk in a variety of certification types to meet airplane safety requirements
- Using Electrical Digital Twin Technology at all phases of the aircraft’s product lifecycle results in considerable time and cost savings while achieving higher performance electrification of the aircraft
EWIS Risk Assessment Tool
Mitigate electrical compliance risk in the aerospace industry using a digital twin platform approach that will:
- Manage the required information for ELA, such as single-line wire diagrams, operation scenarios (all flight phases), analysis data and charts for review
- Perform ELA iterations, ELA reports, and ELA analysis
- Show compliance for every configuration
Enable Aircraft Electrical Design Compliance and Certification
By automating EWIS design and analysis to meet the challenges of electrical compliance risk, teams are now able to effectively reduce program risks for electrical compliance. The Capital load analysis tool discussed in this paper, supports certification and offers numerous advantages for programs.
