Hybrid Electric Propulsion Systems for Aircrafts
A decade or two back, virtually every transport ran on fossil fuels and combustion engines. These engines, even with their low efficiencies and pollution issues, had no viable replacements and therefore persisted. However, past 20 years have seen an enormous shift towards ‘cleaner’ energy. With fossil fuels being eliminated out...
