Abstract

This project aims to develop an electrical system for a hybrid-electric, regional aircraft as part of the drive towards more sustainable transportation. It wants to reduce the aviation industry's contribution to carbon emissions, looking at more green sources of power. This paper presents the design method for mathematical models to determine the electrical power system sizing for a parallel hybrid-electric aircraft architecture. The work includes an investigation of the power losses, volume, and weight of the gearbox, electrical machine, power electronic converters, circuit breakers, batteries, and fuel cells. The work shows potential weight savings by increasing machine speed and improving battery specific energy density. This EPS design has been conducted to form part of a larger study aiming to produce a hybrid-electric aircraft design.
