  1. Dual Mode Electrical Accumulator Unit (DMEAU) II

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF093173

    ABSTRACT: Electrical motors are rapidly replacing hydraulic motors in flight actuators for aircraft applications. In hydraulic systems, accumulators are used to store regenerative energy from the actuators as well as to supply peak energy demands of these actuators in response to flight control system demands. No electrical analog (Electrical Accumulator Unit) exists in production, although som ...
