B747 Structural Converter Rack
The goal of this Project was the design, development, and certification of a Power Converter Rack installed above the ceiling attached to the aircraft frames.
The Power Racks consists of the integration of several TRU’s and power converter including a power control panel.
Due to the high expected ambient Temperature and the high-temperature deployment of the components, a carefully selected location of the Rack, an appropriate arrangement of the elements and the maintainability of the installed units, with a focus on the weight and structural integration was the challenge of this project.
Key figures of the Power Racks are:
• Integrated Wire channels
• Lightweight structure
• Structural aircraft attachment with tie rods
• Temperature deployment of the components
• Power Control Panel.
