Keywords: electromechanical electro-hydrostatic servohydraulic actuator power
Turbofan powered civil transport aircraft flight trajectories for minimum actuation system power consumption are calculated and presented. These results are discussed in the context of flight trajectories calculated at the whole aircraft level for minimised fuel burn. The research is part of the CleanSky Programme.
