UTC Aerospace Systems Teams With KAES Hanwha To Provide BestClass Power Generation For KF-X

– System will include first new variable speed constant frequency (VSCF) generator for the military aerospace market in more than a decade

– KF-X will be the first platform to host the new VSCF generator, which is designed to achieve an order of magnitude improvement over the industry average in operational reliability

FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW, July 15, 2018  — UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), today announced that it has signed a contract with KAES Hanwha to provide the main electric power generation system (MEPGS) to Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI)  for its KF-X advanced multirole fighter jet. Under the agreement, KAES Hanwha and UTC Aerospace Systems will design, develop and produce the MEPGS.

“Through our agreement, KAES Hanwha and UTC Aerospace Systems will provide KAI with a best-in-class electric power generation system with unmatched performance,” said Electric, Environmental and Engine Systems President Tim White. “The system’s VSCF generator is designed to be the most reliable and efficient in the military aerospace industry, and may have commercial applications down the road. We’re proud to support the KF-X program and continue to build on our longstanding relationship with KAI.”

The MEPGS will include UTC Aerospace Systems’ newest, state-of-the-art variable speed constant frequency (VSCF) generator—the first new VSCF generator for the military aerospace market in more than a decade. KF-X will be the first platform to host the new VSCF generator, which is designed to achieve an order of magnitude improvement over the industry average in operational reliability.

Compared to UTC Aerospace Systems’ existing VSCF generators flying today, the new generator is also 10 percent more power dense and more efficient, with the new design continuously producing 65 kilowatts of power at a constant 400 Hertz frequency. The generator has an integrally packaged converter and control unit that electronically converts the variable speed output of the generator into the desired constant frequency output power.

In addition to the MEPGS, UTC Aerospace Systems is under contract with KAI to provide the fighter’s complete environmental control system—including air conditioning, bleed air control and cabin pressurization and liquid cooling—along with the aircraft’s air turbine starter and flow control valve. UTC Aerospace Systems already provides the complete environmental control system, air turbine starter and airframe mounted accessory drive for KAI’s T-50 trainer, along with multiple systems for the TA-50 and FA-50 light attack variants.

KAI aims to manufacture more than 100 KF-X fighters for the Republic of Korea Air Force. Production deliveries are expected to commence in the mid-2020s.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
