The concept of ACHIEVE is to design, manufacture and test an innovative and integrated mechatronic device which is capable of performing motoring, generating, power transmission, health monitoring and signal communications. The mechatronic device is essentially made of an electrical machine, an electronic power converter and associate controllers. Moving from the state-of-the-art brushed 28Vdc generator, the system developed within the ACHIEVE is a highly integrated motor-generator system with higher power density, lower weight and with fault tolerant capabilities.
