A half day, online event focussed on the application of superconductivity to electic aircraft propulsion. The event will consist of several in depth talks, a panel discussion, and social / networking time after the formal part has ended.
In order to reduce the environmental impacts of air travel, Flightpath 2050 aims to reduce CO2 by 75%, NOx by 90% and noise by 65% relative to 2000 baseline. Superconductivity will play an important role in the future electric aircraft due to its high power density and high efficiency, in particular the recent development of high temperature superconductor materials. This online seminar encompasses developments in engineering design and modelling associated with superconductivity in electric aircraft.
At the whole electric aircraft system level, Airbus is leading the future programme of aircraft electrification over next few decades. University of Newcastle has identified key technologies for electric and hybrid aircraft. At the superconducting machine device level, the advanced superconducting motor experimental demonstrator (ASuMED), funded by the European Union, is developing a new fully superconducting motor with high power density and high efficiency. Rolls Royce has evaluated the superconducting and cryogenic cooled components using holistic system approach and investigated concept of a high power density generators that could be coupled directly to a gas turbine.
We wil be using an online videoconferencing platform to deliver the seminar. To access the event you will need a good internet connection and a decent computer with audio; to get the most from the event you will need a webcam.
The programme will run from 14:00 to 17:00 UK time.
Details of the programme and speakers will be published shortly.
