About This Book

One of the most important advantages of electric aviation is that it produces no emissions while in operation. The majority of electric power will be produced in an environmentally friendly manner in the near future globally.

On the other hand, electric aviation is a novel method of transport that can be thought of as a complementary element between public and private modes of transportation. When compared to traditional commercial aviation, it is more suitable for small passenger flows and can operate over shorter distances with the current technological achievements while still making a profit. Consequently, regional flights will have a significant positive impact on the environment and emit fewer emissions. Aviation transportation modes can be arranged to adapt in a regional way to integrate the main flow. It will be used to replace some modes of transportation on some trips, but it will be used more frequently as part of new trip chains. 

The electric aircraft industry is divided into hybrid vehicles and all-electric vehicles categories in terms of technology. One of the primary factors driving the growth of the electric aircraft market over the next few years will be the adoption of advanced aircraft construction techniques. Academicians will create a significant amount of knowledge and technology in the literature by introducing electric vertical takeoff and landing by monitoring battery health and storage technologies. Also, the design of the power systems, novel propulsion, and application of solutions will be the central areas in this industry. 

This book will be popular as a starting point for electric aviation studies and get many citations while the industry develops the latest technologies. The editors have planned the chapters of this book as below.

  • An Introduction to More-Electric and All-Electric Aircraft

  • Novel Propulsion System Architectures for Aviation

  • Power System Designs

  • Applications of Power Electronics

  • Energy Storage Components: Batteries

  • Energy Storage Components: Fuel Cells

  • Energy Storage Components: Super Capacitors

  • Unmanned Aero Vehicle (UAV) Technologies

  • New Generation Aero Vehicle Design Procedures

  • Effects of Electric-Oriented Aviation on Airports and Airlines
