Design and development of the control FPGA for the project SPU-MOET

J.D. Muñoz Frías S. Alexandres C. Rodríguez-Morcillo

December 2007 - October 2008

Funding entity CRISA

This work is included into the European project MOET (More Open Electrical Technologies), which belongs to the sixth framework program. MOET aims to establish the new industrial standard for commercial aircraft electrical system design. These standards will allow the substitution of current pneumatic and hydraulic actuators by new electrical actuators. This will lead to a better energy efficiency and enhance aircraft design. The project develops the energy generation, energy distribution and electrical actuators.
This project will consist in the specification in VHDL of a digital circuit to control an electrical drive to move an aircraft aileron. The circuit will be implemented in a FPGA and will have a CPU block to execute the control algorithms and various I/O interfaces: PWM generation, ADC and DAC, etc.
