This paper focuses on evaluating the energy and power requirements of a specific aircraft on-board electric taxiing (ET) system. The developed model of the investigated system is used to determine the requisites for a typical taxiing profile mission of a Boeing 737-400. Besides the derivation of the specifications, the comparison of batteries and electrochemical capacitors is outlined in the light of viable candidates for a local energy storage system (LESS). It is estimated that LESS should be sized for capacity of 19kWh and peak power of 81kW. The paper is concluded with a comparison and discussion on LESS topologies.
