IS230TEASH4A is an Aero Emergency Trip Module developed by GE. It is a part of Mark VIe control system. It is responsible for monitoring and controlling systems, providing fail-safe measures in the event of critical faults or emergencies. As a component of the Mark VIe control system, the module leverages the system's features and capabilities.
- TMR Outputs and Output Voting: In a TMR system, outputs are meticulously managed and monitored to maintain system integrity. The TMR outputs undergo a voting process to select the most reliable and accurate output value. This output voting hardware, designed for redundancy, ensures that even if one output source encounters an error or discrepancy, the system can still rely on the outputs from the other redundant sources.
- Simplex Hardware Outputs: In addition to TMR outputs, some systems may also have the capability to output individual signals through simplex hardware. Unlike TMR outputs, simplex hardware outputs do not involve voting and rely solely on the single output source. While simplex hardware outputs may not offer the same level of redundancy as TMR, they are still valuable for various applications and can be useful in less critical scenarios.
- Independent Calculation of TMR System Outputs:
Each of the three redundant controllers independently calculates the TMR system outputs. These controllers work autonomously, processing data and making decisions based on their respective algorithms and inputs. This independence ensures that the system is not solely reliant on a single controller and provides the benefit of increased fault tolerance.
- Output Distribution to Associated I/O Hardware: After the outputs are individually calculated by each controller, each controller sends its respective output to its associated I/O hardware. For example, the R controller sends its output to the R I/O, the S controller sends its output to the S I/O, and so on. This segregation helps maintain a clear and organized output distribution within the system.
- Voting Mechanism for Combining Outputs: The final step in the output process is the combination of the three independent outputs into a single output. A voting mechanism is employed to make this decision. Depending on the signal type, various methods may be used to establish the voted value. Different signal types, such as digital or analog signals, may require different voting approaches to ensure an accurate and reliable output.
- Signal Type-Based Voting Methods: The voting mechanism takes into consideration the type of signal being processed. For digital signals, a majority voting method may be used, where the voted value is the one that appears most frequently among the three independent outputs. For analog signals, a weighted voting method might be employed, where each output's reliability and accuracy are assigned different weights in the voting process.
