POWER DISTRIBUTION ON COMPOSITE AIRCRAFT
POWER DISTRIBUTION ON COMPOSITE AIRCRAFTComposite aircraft present an interesting challenge when it comes to electric power distribution, control of static electricity, and lightning strikes. The possibility of system interference from high energy radiated fields (HERF) is also enhanced in composite aircraft. HERF energy can easily transmit through nonprotected composite materials. For these reasons, most composite aircraft are completely covered by a conductive layer, and all metal fasteners and electrical ground connections are bonded to this layer. In other words, a conductive metal mesh is molded into the composite structure to create an electrical shield around the aircraft. Many different types of conductive materials are used including n…
