Abstract

The paper describes part of an EU research project, aiming at the development of a new distributed aircraft fuel management system, using smart components. Along the research is necessary to develop and check candidate solutions for the distributed control. A simulation system has been created, using two interconnected computers. One of the computers simulates in real time the networked electronic part of the smart components. The other computer simulates the fuel plant, with the tanks, valves, pipes, etc. Both computers interact with the same analog or discrete signals that are present in the real aircraft fuel system. The paper describes this simulation system, and presents some experiments which reproduce the main operations of the fuel management system.
