Abstract

In this study, two generic electromechanical actuators were thermally investigated whilst resisting a steady load for nine minutes. The EMA’s represent flap actuators that will be housed in the aircraft wing bay. The research aimed to identify temperature hotspots and overheating concerns followed by proposing cooling methods. The motors driving the EMA’s have windings on the rotor separated from the stator and housing by an airgap clearance.
