Civil Aircraft Electrical Power System Safety Assessment

Civil Aircraft Electrical Power System Safety Assessment supplements the content of the advisory material to the regulation as well as the main supporting industry standards, and tries to discuss how to efficiently organize and manage safety activities. This book emphasizes on practices and guidelines by demonstrating the contiguous safety assessment process of civil airborne electrical power system. In addition, it discusses how to address the issues (e.g., single-event effects) and methods (e.g., the formal methods) in current safety assessment process.

Chapter 1, Airworthiness Regulations and Safety Requirements, and Chapter 2, Safety Management, summarize airworthiness regulations and safety requirements and also the management of safety activities.

The main safety assessment process and safety analysis methods, such as AFHA, SFHA, PSSA, CCA, FMEA, and SSA, are discussed in Chapter 3, Aircraft Functional Hazard Assessment,  Chapter 4, System Functional Hazard Assessment,  Chapter 5, Preliminary System Safety Assessment,  Chapter 6, Common Cause Analysis,  Chapter 7, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, and  Chapter 8, System Safety Assessment. From  Chapter 4, System Functional Hazard Assessment,  Chapter 5, Preliminary System Safety Assessment,  Chapter 6, Common Cause Analysis,  Chapter 7, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis with Summary, and  Chapter 8, System Safety Assessment, each chapter first summarizes inputs, detailed process, and outputs of safety assessment process and safety analysis methods, and then a case study of civil airborne electrical power system is performed. The case study, which provides the continuity through Chapter 4, System Functional Hazard Assessment, Chapter 5, Preliminary System Safety Assessment, Chapter 6, Common Cause Analysis, Chapter 7, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis with Summary, and Chapter 8, System Safety Assessment, can show the reader how to bring the whole safety assessment activities together in a logical and efficient manner.

Chapter 9, Single Event Effects in Avionics, discusses how to address the issues of single-event effects in safety assessment process. The sensitivity assessment method is included, as well as an example of single-event effects, sensitivity assessment of electrical power system.

Chapter 10, Formal Model Based Safety Analysis Methods and the Application, discusses formal methods used in civil airborne system safety assessment, and a case study of the safety assessment for civil airborne electrical power system using the formal methods is given.

  • Introduces how to conduct assignment of development assurance levels for the electrical power system
  • Includes safety assessments of aging platforms and their respective Electrical Wiring Interconnection System (EWIS)
  • Features material on failure mechanisms for wiring systems and discussion of Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) sustainment
