Abstract:
The authors are currently developing the MEE (More Electric Engine) electric motor-driven fuel pump system for aircraft engines. The electric fuel system will contribute to the reduction of engine power extraction to drive the fuel pump; thus, an improvement in engine efficiency will be expected. In addition, the engine system reliability will be improved by introducing advanced electric architecture, and the reduction of hydraulic components, fuel tubes and fittings is effective to enhance the maintainability of the engine.Although it is considered that the MEE electric fuel system will realize several benefits, there are technical challenges to introduce such new electric system into aircraft. One of the key technical challenges is to construct a redundant and simplified electric fuel system, because continuous operation of the fuel pump system is crucial for aircraft safety. The authors consider that integration of the aircraft fuel system and engine fuel system will provide a solution for the technical issue, and propose a concept of an integrated electric fuel system in this paper.
