The previous chapter presented hardware cross monitoring in both architectures, and showed that the largest failure transients were motor failures related. Although the design met the aircraft response in roll, repeated hardware components in hardware cross monitoring necessitates for larger installation compartments. Therefore, this chapter proposes and compares digital cross monitoring (with a minimum of two lanes of repeated hardware) to hardware cross monitoring. Here, the hardware will be represented by three-phase equivalents and the digital mathematical model will be represented by the lumped model equivalent. The threephase hardware representation allows for detailed response examination in the presence of torque ripples contributed by the individual lanes. The Simulation Graphical Monte Carlo (SGMC) method will be implemented in this chapter too as a threshold setting technique.
