With the support of:


STARTGENSYS [ Electrical test bench drive systems: mechanical interfaces ] is a research project started in August 2011 in response to the 3rd Call for Proposals released in January 2010 under Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative (JTI), a programme funded both by the European Commission and the aeronautical industry.

The aim of the STARTGENSYS project is to design, manufacture, commissioning and validation of four complete and identical driving systems for a ground test bench intended to be used for aircraft starters/generators testing.

The four driving systems will be integrated in one single product and will function simultaneously or not, independently and/or interdependently. Each system will drive one single generator or starter/generator and will be able to simulate electrical start of the aircraft engine, as well as electrical generation.
