GE Aviation says its next-generation primary and solid-state secondary electrical power distribution and control system offers weight savings.July 30, 2021, 12:00 PMGE Aviation will provide the primary and solid-state secondary electrical power distribution and control system for Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 10X. GE Aviation’s systems president Brad Mottier said the system is a next-generation design that will offer “significant” weight savings compared with conventional architecture through a reduction of equipment. The system also provides for increased flexibility that will allow Dassault to rapidly implement it for customer-specific configurations. It also features easier in-service modification and implementation as well as improved maintainability, GE Aviation said. “We’re building on decades of experience producing electrical power systems on military and commercial applications and are working with Dassault to bring the latest technology to market for their customers,” said GE Aviation general manager of electrical power Joe Krisciunas. All electrical power system certification testing will be done at GE’s Electric Power Integration Center in Cheltenham, UK, using dynamic software modeling, simulation, and analysis to predict the performance of the system and its individual components. That includes full system testing within a copper-bird environment. “By using this state-of-the-art lab, GE will reduce development risk and program time scales prior to aircraft introduction,” said Krisciunas.
