Capital Load Analyzer software for electrical design of aircraft for power compliance introduced by Mentor
Electrical digital twin provides automated view of the power system, enabling engineers to design for compliance from the beginning of the project.
WILSONVILLE, Ore. – Mentor, a Siemens business in Wilsonville, Ore., is introducing Capital Load Analyzer software to help simplify aircraft electrical design compliance and certification.
Modern aircraft systems, such as electrical flight control systems and in-flight entertainment systems, require more power, have more electrical content, and have higher compliance risk that previous generations because of increased complexity.
Capital Load Analyzer uses automation and digital data continuity to facilitate regulatory compliance. It draws on the electrical digital twin, generated from the overall power system and subsystems design, to predict the aircraft electrical power demand.
The electrical digital twin provides an automated view of the entire power system, enabling engineers to design for compliance from the beginning of the project.
Analysis and simulation are performed using primary design data instead of using traditional manual and disconnected approaches. Rules-based checking and analysis helps verify aircraft power system efficiency for each flight phase -- even under load shedding for emergency conditions.
