Title: A Noninvasive Sensor/Control Suite for Health Monitoring and Extended Life of Aircraft Generation Systems
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N68335-13-C-0178
Award Amount: $250,000.00
 

Abstract:

Failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. Furthermore, if the root cause for the failure cannot be quickly identified, this can lead to increased maintenance costs and potential downtime for the aircraft. In this effort, enhanced diagnostic and prognostic algorithms will be implemented in a hardware unit to minimize such failures and quickly identify corrective maintenance actions if failures should occur for the F/A-18 Generator Converter Unit (GCU) PS1 power supply. The outcome for this effort will be a production prototype Power Supply Tester (PST) hardware unit that will accurately assess the health of the PS1 and identify corrective maintenance actions for degraded or failed components within the PS1.
