27 - Aileron Servo Control Operation

GENERAL

(2)

2 electro-hydraulic servocontrols for each aileron


2 modes:
o Active
o Damping
Each aileron is equipped with two identical electro-hydraulic servo-controls.
These servo-controls have two modes:
- the active mode
- the damping mode.
ACTIVE MODE
3

Solenoid valve energized

HP fluid flow

Mode selector valve in active position

2 chambers connected to the servo-valve

LVDT: Supplies electrical signal for servo control position

Feedback transducer: Gives the servo-loop feedback


In the active mode, the solenoid valve is energized by the Electrical Flight
Control System (EFCS). This enables the HP fluid to flow and to put the mode
selector valve in the active position. The two chambers of the actuator are thus
connected to the servo-valve control lines. The servo-control is then in the
active mode. The Linear Variable-Differential Transducer (LVDT) supplies an
electrical signal to the ELAC, which identifies this change of state. The
feedback transducer (also called LVDT) gives the servo-loop feedback.
DAMPING MODE
4

(3)

Actuator follows the control surface movements


Solenoid valve de-energized
Mode selector valve moves under action of its spring
2 chambers interconnected via damping orifice
LVDT: Identifies change of state
Fluid reserve hold the volume of fluid:
o If the T of the hydraulic fluid changes
o If there is a leakage
In damping mode, the actuator follows the control surface movements. In this
configuration, the solenoid valve is de-energized and the mode selector valve
moves under the action of its spring. The two chambers of the actuator are thus
interconnected through the damping orifice. The LVDT identifies this change of
state and transmit it to the EFCS. The fluid reserve allows to hold the volume of
fluid in the actuator chambers:

- if the temperature of the hydraulic fluid changes or,


- if there is a leakage.
The fluid reserve is permanently connected to the return line of the servo-valve.
MAINTENANCE AND RIGGING FACILITIES

LVDT adjustment after servo-control replacement:


o Use of the feedback transducer adjustment device
o To get an equal voltage in the secondary winding
After replacement of the servo-control, it is necessary to adjust the feedback
transducer (LVDT). It is necessary to get an equal voltage in the secondary
winding (electrical zero) when the aileron is in neutral position. This is done
through an action on the feedback transducer adjustment device located on the
actuator.
