New Opportunities for Motor Design – Electric and Hybrid Propulsion of Aircraft

Bulent Sarlioglu
University of Wisconsin-Madison


Main propulsion of today’s commercial aircraft is gas engines. It is envisioned that next step is to hybridize or use full electric propulsion systems to minimize the emissions, increase the reliability, and reduce the cost of flying. This talk will have two sections. In first section, Dr. Sarlioglu will present the most recent developments in electric and hybrid propulsion of aircraft. In the second section, the needs, requirements, and power densities for motor topologies will be addressed. New material technologies and design approaches along with challenges and opportunities will be presented to achieve aerospace-grade high power density and high efficiency motors.
