The possibility of realizing full electric or hybrid electric propulsion for aircraft has been considered due to the constant growth in the use of electric technologies in aircraft and the availability of high-power-density electrical machines and converters. In this paper, an optimized design approach is proposed with reference to the optimal trade-off between energy storage system sizing and Cited by: 4. In order to solve this problem, this paper proposes a novel hybrid optimisation approach, namely a Hybrid Firefly Bee Algorithm (HFBA), by using the Bees Algorithm (BA) and the Firefly Algorithm (FA).   Further to the analysis of a parallel hybrid-electric, midscale aircraft, this paper also presents a scaling approach for a 20 kg unmanned aerial vehicle and a 50 ton intercity airliner. At the smaller scale, two different mission profiles are analyzed: an intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance mission profile and a maximum-duration Cited by: Engineering students at the University of Virginia have simulated a hybrid electric plane that’s capable of carrying 50 people. Using Flight Optimization System (FLOPS) software, the team of undergraduates led by aerospace engineering students Sohail Ahmad and Kelly Thomas evaluated several potential designs based on existing airplanes and propulsion systems.

  NASA is investing in Hybrid Electric Propulsion research as part of its overall efforts to improve the fuel efficiency, emissions, and noise levels in commercial transport aircraft. The term “hybrid electric” is being used loosely here, and it’s really meant to encompass many different methods for using both airplane fuel and electricity to drive the propulsion system. 4 Electric Propulsion INTRODUCTION. Electrical propulsion in commercial aircraft may be able to reduce carbon emissions, but only if new technologies attain the specific power, 1 weight, and reliability required for a successful commercial fleet. The committee considered six . In just ten years, a plane that flies using a radical hybrid wing shaped body could become a reality. A scale version of the ‘Blended Wing Body’ (BWB) aircraft is currently being tested at a NASA facility. NASA says commercial designs will be available by The aircraft hybrid system would use electric motors working in concert with a jet turbine, like the ones used in today's commercial airliners, according to Popular Science.

However, using its symmetry, half of the aircraft will be sufficient. For this simulation, the fluid domain is constructed as a half-sphere with a radius of m. The outer boundary is again split into a velocity inlet and a pressure outlet. Using the trimmed hexahedral mesher, the complete fluid domain is discretized and is shown in Figure 8.   A number of hybrid and turboelectric airplane concepts have been explored through a combination of NASA, industry, academia and other government agencies. For regional jets and larger planes, the design configurations generally fall into three categories: partially turboelectric, fully turboelectric, and hybrid electric. Turboelectric or partially turboelectric systems store all energy in . The first step in characterizing the aging of a material or structural component is to define the operating environment as precisely as possible. For new applications, this proves very difficult, since actual data are scarce and conditions are defined largely through estimates or analyses. Among the. The IEEE Transportation Electrification Community coordinates broad and deep activities throughout the IEEE in the growing electrification revolution across transportation domains, including advances in electric and hybrid cars, more-electric ships and aircraft, rail systems, personal transport, and the motive, storage, power grid, electronic intelligence, and control technologies that make.
