State-of-the-art high lift actuation systems of modern airplanes comprise complex mechanical shaft transmission systems powered by central drive units. As a safety critical system numerous failures must be taken into account which’s effects are tried to be minimized by protection devices affecting maximum occurring loads. These design loads dimension the components of the transmission system and are directly related to the component parameters leading to high dependency of system and component parameters. An emerging exhaustion in the development of centrally driven actuation systems motivates the evaluation of significant variations of system configurations as well as the impact of changing component technology. The methodologies and applied modeling as well as the concept that enables optimization are presented in this paper.
