Based on the comprehensive design and airworthiness verification of civil aircraft fuel system, the simulation modeling of fuel system is completed. The aircraft fuel system model is designed by using AMESim software under the environment of distributed cooperative simulation platform. It can realize the fuel quantity change of aircraft fuel system, and ventilation and pressurization, and inerting. The functions of pressure refueling, engine supply and oil discharge are realized through the heat transfer and pipeline analysis of fuel system. The simulation results show that the fuel system can effectively realize the functional characteristics of the actual fuel system, which is of great significance for the optimization design of the aircraft system and the modification integration test.
