For the full electrical operation of aircraft systems, electromechanical actuators are a key enabler. But also high performance rail vehicles or custom machines are often limited by current actuator technology. The interaction of the mechanical, thermal and electrical domain combined with control algorithms makes the design of these actuators challenging. The Actuator Library allows you to model electromechanical actuators from very early design stages up to detailed design or even the development of health monitoring algorithms.

The library contains templates of common actuators and detailed actuator components such as nutscrews, gear transmissions, permanent magnet motors, inverters, heatsinks, sensors and controllers. The actuator library not only supports the design of healthy actuators, but also allows to model non-nominal working of these actuators using components with pretended faults.
