Electric aircraft with HTS (High Temperature Superconductor) motor, eesign & simulation
MetadataShow full item record
Evolution of electric aircrafts would allow more efficient, quiet and green transports that would reduce the emission of greenhouse gases along with reduction in the overall flight expenses, which conventional IC engines are incapable of. This thesis concerns the possibility of designing an efficient electrical aircraft by considering AURORA D8 body structure. The AURORA D8 or the double bubble design is currently under development by NASA and is predicted to hit the market by 2035. The aircraft will be powered by HTS motor, the armature coil of which will be made of YBCO. The simulation of the motor is carried out by FEA software COMSOL 5.3. A cryocooler is designed and its simulation is done in ANSYS.
