The aircraft industry is evolving
towards an increased use of electrical auxiliaries, particularly
to replace hydraulic and mechanically powered systems. The
aerospace industry demands not only very high performance but
also extremes of reliability and fault tolerance. SR
designed and developed by Nidec SR Drives Ltd (NSRD),
can offer highly fault tolerant design, without recourse to
redundant systems, as well as small size, high temperature
operation and excellent servo performance.
Although this application area is still in its infancy, NSRD
has experience in fuel pump systems, starter generators and secondary
surface actuators and is actively involved with new developments
in this area.
