Reliability of electromechanical actuation systems as those used in aerospace applications may be improved by a proper choice of the motor, of its control strategy and of the architecture of the power electronics feeding the motor. This paper presents a Simulink library for the simulation of the motor and of its control electronics allowing to choose between three types of motor and between two types of vector control. The models allow the simulation of different fault conditions in order to identify the weak and strong points of each architecture. The research reported in this paper was performed within the European Union FP6 project DRESS (Distributed and Redundant Electromechanical nose gear Steering System) for more electrical aircraft (
