AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL POWER SYSTEMS. MODELING AND SIMULATION. VALIDATION AND VERIFICATION METHODS.
The development of future more-and full-electric aircraft concepts has significantly impacted aircraft electric power system (EPS) design. Finalizing the EPS architectures involves extensive modeling and simulation activities to ensure the required characteristics of the entire EPS prior to the physical implementation. Hence, the development of accurate, effective and computational time-saving simulation models is of great importance. Correspondingly, there is a need to establish an EPS-specific modeling and simulations common framework to ensure effective and accurate solutions to the problems addressed. The document continues a series of AE-7M documents specific for aircraft electrical systems aiming to establish such a framework (the series has started with AIR 6326 "Aircraft Electrical Power Systems. Modeling and Simulation. Definitions" issued in August, 2015).
Rationale: This document overviews and details validation and verification methods specific for models developed for simulation of aircraft EPS. It continues a series of AIRs and ARPs within the scope of the SAE AE-7M committee.
