Abstract:This thesis presents research into and development of a suggested methodology for the sizing of an electrical power generation, distribution, and propulsion system for electric airplanes at the conceptual design level. Considerations for machine type, energy storage technology, volume packaging, and modeling are discussed. The methodology is applied to a design study for a medium-altitude, long-endurance survey drone to demonstrate the process and results. Finally, future research topics in the electric aircraft design space are suggested, particularly the need for a dedicated tool for electric aircraft powertrain analysis.
