TITLE: "Power System Sizing and Analysis for Electric Aircraft Conceptual Design"

ABSTRACT: We present a proposed, conceptual design level methodology for an electrical power generation, distribution, and propulsion system for electric airplanes. We explicitly consider machine topology, system losses and volume packaging issues. We apply the methodology to a design study for a medium altitude survey drone. We discuss the resulting product and present the analysis of the obtained results.
