Abstract:
On-going work in examining the potential use of on-board calculation of remaining control power margin (RCP) for distributed electric propulsion (DEP) aircraft is described, where that metric may be an indicator of the capability of the vehicle to accommodate operational disturbances and avoid loss of control (LOC) events. Analysis and simulation modeling for the DEP vehicle is using CDI's CHARM (Comprehensive Heirarchical Aeromechanics Rotorcraft Model) code for representing the highly interactional aerodynamic environment for these aircraft, with the RCP algorithm development tested in both simulation and scaled flight experiments of representative DEP configurations
