Abstract

Electrification of aircraft propulsion systems has the potential to improve their efficiencies and to reduce emissions on a global basis. For electric propulsion to be practical, the electric components must have high-efficiency and high power-to-weight ratios. For the past 4 years, the Haran research group has been working on designing and building a motor to meet the goals. The efforts in the past year have focused on the manufacture and testing of the components with final assembly and subsequent testing to occur shortly thereafter. This presentation provides the background for the design and describes the efforts of the past year. In addition, we discuss the test plans and future developments.
