More Electric Aircraft Electro-Mechanical Actuator Regenerated Power Management

More Electric Aircraft Electro-Mechanical Actuator Regenerated Power Management

Dr. Christian Ian Hill from the University of Nottingham gave a presentation on last years conference about causes of regeneration in EMAs, options for energy management, modelica library for electro-mechanical actuator system studies including fault scenarios and losses, AC distribution and aircraft electrical power systems.

Multi-Megawatt Electric Power Sytems for Aircraft Propulsion

Multi-Megawatt Electric Power Sytems for Aircraft Propulsion

The aircraft industry is looking seriously at Hybrid Electric aircraft to allow a distributed propulsion approach (HEDP).

Peter Malkin from the University of Newcastle shares his presentation and gives insights into these systems, highlighting the usage of large multi megawatt electric power networks that can meet the requirements of aerospace applications and in particular power density.

Accounting for Power and Thermal Effects Early in the Aircraft Design Process

Accounting for Power and Thermal Effects Early in the Aircraft Design Process

Darcy Allison from Air Force Reserach Laboratory shows insights into optimized integrated multidisciplinary sytems (OPTIMUS). 

Look at his presentation from last years conference and read about their in-house AFRL OPTIMUS program, including design analysis and optimization, effectiveness-based design, centrality of propulsion system to thermal subsystem and aircraft performance and approaches to solve these issues.
