The next generation Rotorcraft will rely more and more on Brushless DC motors for flight and vibration control to improve reliability.
MotorSolve software is an indispensable tool for the design and analyses of motor configurations to facilitate the rapid growth of electric propulsion, flight control and system elements for rotorcraft platforms.
What problems were resolved?
Rotorcraft platforms require special attention to redundancy and reliability due to the fundamental concept of rotary wing flight. In addition, severe vibration is generated due to the environment of high frequency operation of rotor and wing. Utilizing electric controls poses difficult challenges to meet safety and reliability needs. The optimization of the motor configuration is critical to ensure weight and envelope goals.
