Early stage design provides the greatest opportunities to explore design alternatives and perform trade studies before costly design decisions are made. The goal of this research is to develop a simulation-based framework that enables architectural analysis of complex systems during the conceptual design phase. Using this framework; design teams can systematically explore architectural design decisions during the early stage of system development prior to the selection of specific components. The analysis performed at this earliest stage of design facilitates the development of more robust and reliable system architectures. Application of the presented method to the design of a representative aerospace electrical power system (EPS) demonstrates these capabilities.

Keywords: Simulation-based design; electrical power system; architectural design; concept generation
