PROJECT TITLE:

Electromechanical control system of a propeller useful for an aircraft with high maneuverability.
 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

An efficient electromechanical control system of propeller with high number of blades. Some new concepts of aircrafts, e.g. hybrid helicopters, need fast in-flight changes of thrust direction- twin-engine airplanes need the feathering propellers. The trend of excluding hydraulic media from the energy distribution is motivated by environmental issues, by the need to increase the reliability of systems and unification of energy sources on the board of aircraft and by the effort to reduce losess.
