Abstract

The power density of electrical machines required for more-electric and hybrid-electric aircraft has become a critical aspect and target of optimization. This paper looks at the development aspects of a multi-domain tool to aid for system-level optimization of electrical machines within next-generation high power-density aerospace applications. The electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical aspects are wholly integrated, thus enabling the optimization including the non-active mass. The implementation and overall architecture are described with the aim of investigating the impact of coolant flowrate, coolant medium as well as efficiency on the achievable power to mass ratio.
