Engine Electronics fire and overheat design guide

2010-03-09
WIP
AIR6108
This document scope covers all of the considerations relevant to the design of a fire and overheat protection scheme for an aerospace electronic control unit.. The focus is the engine electronic controller (EEC) typically used on civil aircraft applications and mounted on engine, but aspects are also applicable to condition monitoring units and units mounted off-engine. Content includes aplicable regulations, assumptions, additional constraints, installation, compliance strategies and compliance testing.

External Software Loading of Electronic Engine Controls

CURRENT
ARP4714A
This paper presents guidelines for development of a procedure for external software loading of an electronic engine control (EEC) for a commercial application, on-wing or in a qualified service shop. This paper makes the following assumptions: a The EEC is designed to accept external software loading. b The EEC is certified as part of an engine. c The support equipment is qualified in accordance with procedures set forth by the engine (and aircraft, if necessary) certifying authority if the EEC cannot detect an integrity violation of the loaded program. d The software to be loaded has been approved by the engine and aircraft certifying authorities. e One or more configurations of EEC hardware has been identified for each version of software which is to be loaded in the EEC. It is appropriate to use these guidelines in the initial development phase, although the certification issues would not be applicable.

Guidelines for Time-Limited-Dispatch (TLD) Analysis for Electronic Engine Control Systems

HISTORICAL
ARP5107B
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides methodologies and approaches which have been used for conducting and documenting the analyses associated with the application of Time Limited Dispatch (TLD) to the thrust control reliability of Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) systems. The TLD concept is one wherein a redundant system is allowed to operate for a predetermined length of time with faults present in the redundant elements of the system, before repairs are required. This document includes the background of the development of TLD, the structure of TLD that was developed and implemented on present generation commercial transports, and the analysis methods used to validate the application of TLD on present day FADEC equipped aircraft.

Guidelines for Engine Component Tests

2016-10-16
CURRENT
ARP5757A
This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) provides guidance for substantiating the airworthiness of aircraft engine components. Generally these components are associated with the engine control system, the system or systems that allow the engine to provide thrust or power as demanded by the pilot of the aircraft while also ensuring the engine operates within acceptable operating limits. But these components may also include hardware and systems associated with engine lubrication, engine or aircraft hydraulic or electrical systems, aircraft environmental control systems, thrust reverser control, or similar aircraft or engine propulsion system functions. This paper develops the concept of using a 26 item matrix of environmental conditions for evaluating aircraft engine component airworthiness. This approach is compatible with current practices used in the industry and has been accepted by engine certification authorities as part of engine certification programs.

Guidelines for the Integration of Electronic Engine Control Systems with Transport Category Aircraft Systems

AIR5924
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) provides methodologies and approaches that have been used to install and integrate full-authority-digital-engine-control (FADEC) systems on transport category aircraft. Although the information provided is based on turbofan engines installed on large commercial transports, many of the issues raised are equally applicable to corporate, general aviation, regional and commuter aircraft, and to military installations, particularly when commercial aircraft are employed by military users. The word “engine” is used to designate the aircraft propulsion system. The engine station designations used in this report are shown in Figure 1. Most of the material concerns an Electronic Engine Control (EEC) with its associated software, and its functional integration with the aircraft. However, the report also addresses the physical environment associated with the EEC and its associated wiring and sensors.
