The increasing use of aircraft electrical system lowers the total cost of ownership, enhances propulsion efficiency and reduces environmental impact. By replacing hydraulic and pneumatic systems, electrical systems can produce a significant weight reduction, resulting in better fuel consumption.
Other advantages include easier maintenance, better control and the potential to reconfigure aircraft systems to run in fault-tolerant modes.
Electrical systems can also support more advanced diagnostics and prognostics, leading to more intelligent maintenance and increased aircraft availability.
