This diagram shows the layout of the proposed High-Lift Active Flow Control (HLAFC) system for commercial aircraft. The HLAFC system supplies air flow from engine core bleed, auxiliary power unit (APU) bleed, and/or compressed ram air to the trailing-edge flaps. With HLAFC, low-speed aerodynamic performance is augmented, allowing simplification of high-lift mechanism, thus reducing the flap track fairing drag and opening up a potential means to save fuel. Redundancy considerations include multiple air and power sources, duplicate major components, and emergency air storage tanks. View the paper here.
