Abstract:
The Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) is investigating the risks and failure modes of Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) employed in novel Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft designs. To certify these aircraft for private and commercial operations, a greater understanding of how the vehicle is controlled in both nominal and off nominal or degraded modes is required. The EFRC team has designed and built a test stand to characterize the capabilities of a single DEP unit as well as 2 full-scale quadcopter AAM vehicles with RPM, collective and cyclic control. Extensive testing and simulation results showed that in order to operate and stabilize a quadcopter in a rotor out condition both collective and cyclic control must be utilized.
