EXEPS: An Expert System for Simulating Aircraft Electric Power Systems 912049
An expert system shell called EXpert Electric Power Simulator (EXEPS) has been implemented to simulate the behavior of aircraft electric power generating systems (EPGSs). The purpose of the tool is to verify the requirements of the power system's circuit breaker control logic before any hardware or software is developed. Previous to the creation of this tool, manual analysis or costly test stand debug was used to verify the performance of the circuit breaker control logic. By using expert system technology, a highly effective power system simulator has been developed that can provide the detailed system responses needed to verify that the implemented designs will meet the customer performance requirements.
