Abstract: The More Electric Aircraft (MEA) is based on the concept of utilizing electrical power for driving aircraft subsystems currently powered by hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical means including utility and flight control actuation, environmental control system, lubrication and fuel pumps, and numerous other utility functions. In this seminar, Dr. Kojori begins with an overview of the More Electric Aircraft and will discuss how various technologies developed over the past three decades have helped reduce the size, weight and life-cycle-cost of the overall system, significantly improve reliability and ease manufacturing and maintenance. Next he will cover emerging advanced technologies for All Electric Aircraft for urban transportation and discuss some of the main opportunities and challenges.
