Woodward

Aircraft Turbine Actuation Systems

    Reliable, optimized systems lower weight and cost

    Woodward provides complete actuation system design, analysis, and test across a wide range of turbine engine applications: engine start, variable geometry, thermal management, turbine clearance control, engine operability, and compressor bleed applications.

    Our systems level approach allows for optimized engine performance, improved reliability, and significantly reduced costs compared to sourcing individual LRUs. World-class components result from the enhancement of high-pedigree designs with technology innovations. Our state-of-the-art testing facility validates the fully optimized suite of hardware for flawless entry into service (EIS).

    Design features include:

    • Unique ability to determine optimum architectures and actuator placement based on customer-driven requirements
    • Systems level performance and accuracy stack-ups that include sensor effects over life and signal demodulation errors
    • Leverage of standard designs to greatly minimize non-recurring development and recurring costs
    • Innovative proportional and closed-loop control solutions across fuel, oil, air and EMA applications
