Abstract

An energy-saving de-icing technology of aircrafts with high efficiency and energy saving is discussed, which is based on the inverse piezoelectric effect. The finite elements analysis model of a testing skin is developed to analyze the natural modes and harmonic response by the software ANSYS, which proves the feasibility to remove ice by piezoelectric ceramic actuators in theory. Furthermore, the piezoelectric de-icing experiments are performed, in which the ice can be removed successfully in the voltage 650V and frequency 1530Hz. The technology has notable energy saving effect since the power consumption is no more than 32.5W, which is much less than other electrical de-icing systems. The results show that it is worth doing the research into the piezoelectric de-icing technology for its promising future in the application.
