Smart Converters for Optimized Power Usage and Storage

Project description

Smart power converters for electric aircraft

Next-generation aircraft are being designed to run on a more electrical architecture – systems that are normally powered by hydraulics or pneumatics will be replaced by electrical versions. Airplane manufacturers are working on the development of battery, fuel cell or supercapacitor power supplies to reduce their emissions and curb fossil fuel use. DC-to-DC converters are important electronic components in electric power supply systems. These integral links in the power chain move and process power from aircraft engine electrical generators. The EU-funded project SCOPUS will design a smart compact DC-to-DC converter that will be more efficient and have a higher power density compared to state-of-the-art devices. The new modular device will ensure safe and reliable operation of next-generation electrical systems.
