Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) means just that. There is no direct pilot control over the engine or manual control mode. If the FADEC fails, the engine fails.
However, system redundancy makes it much less likely for a FADEC system to fail than a traditional magneto system. In fact, a double magneto failure is statistically more likely than a FADEC failure.
FADEC shares advantages with electronic ignition and EEC systems, but it takes power management several steps further.
FADEC combines throttle, prop, and mixture controls into a single control. Every throttle setting at any altitude results in the optimum power/prop RPM/mixture combination. This enables pilots to realize fuel economy that would only have been dreamed of previously.
Automatic engine performance monitoring constantly provides over-speed and over-boost protection throughout the operational range. Pilots can command maximum power and the system will deliver just that and no more. There is no possibility of exceeding limitations.
FADEC also features diagnostic processes that constantly monitor the health and well-being of the aircraft powerplant. The diagnostics are very good at defining small problems before they become big problems. It’s not surprising that FADEC delivers big returns in increased fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance expense.
The Global Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) to Witness Huge Growth by Key Players BAE Systems is a preferred supplier to GE Aviation and CFM International, with 35+ years experience and an installed base of 30,000 aircraft engines.
In modern aircraft, full authority digital engine control (FADEC) makes flight simpler, safer, more efficient, and more predictable.
By constantly monitoring and automatically adjusting an aircraft’s engine performance and related criteria throughout each flight, our FADECs allow pilots to focus their energy and attention on the environments they are flying through and the security of their passengers or cargo.
BAE Systems has a rich heritage in FADEC systems, having developed and improved multiple generations of FADECs since their inception over 35 years ago.
And, as a member of FADEC International and FADEC Alliance, BAE Systems continues to lead the industry in the evolution of the technology, including our state-of-the-art FADEC on GE, Engine Alliance and CFM International engines powering Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, COMAC, Embraer, and other leading aircraft.
