QUICK Project

QUICK - Quick Disconnect System

The Quick Disconnect System (QUICK) project brings the world leading expertise in mechanical, electrical and control engineering focused on aerospace applications at the University of Nottingham to design, develop, manufacture, test and qualify up to demonstrator test levels, a quick disconnect system intended to be installed on future energy-optimised aircraft. A novel, highly robust and reliable fault detection and mechanical isolation system will be developed aimed at reducing the risks associated with potentially highly dissipative failure modes that high-performance electrical power generator technologies will require in the near future.
