    This article addresses the implementation of electric taxiing without the use of main engines by exploiting the electric propulsion of the landing gears. In a joint initiative, Honeywell Aerospace and Safran have achieved substantial progress in developing an electric green taxiing system (eTaxi). Significant analysis, design, fabrication, and testing have already been completed and culminated in ... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (3941 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    With the trend toward more electric aircraft (mea), the onboard electrical power generation and distribution requires increased electrical power-generation capacity; improved electrical power system (EPS) availability and reliability; and optimized system weight, volume, and efficiency. New EPS architectures are needed to fulfill these performance improvement requirements, where the type of electr... View full abstract»

    The last several decades have witnessed an ever increasing drive toward more electric aircraft (MEA). This drive stems from the need to improve efficiency and reduce lifetime operating costs of the aircraft. Recently, work has focused on the all-electric aircraft (AEA) in which everything, including propulsion, is powered by electric machines (Loff 2016, Aubert 2017). View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2703 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Today's complex aerospace applications demand embedded computing systems that are capable of reliable data transfer and retrieval in optimized power, size, and mass formats. The computing systems are required to be low in cost and ready for deployment across a range of aircraft platforms. Many aircraft controllers employ embedded computing frameworks to perform and execute commands for various sys... View full abstract»

  • Magnetic Saturation Aids Flux-Weakening Control: Using Lookup Tables Based on a Static Method of Identification for Nonlinear Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motors

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):53 - 61
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (4617 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    For a given power voltage, the usual flux-weakening control of permanent-magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) is based on two independent current regulators to expand the speed range of linear PMSMs. Therefore, the magnetic saturation is not often taken into account in these control strategies. Many authors have worked on this topic in recent years, but questions remain about the optimization of the ... View full abstract»

    Transport accounts for nearly two-thirds of the global crude oil consumption and about a quarter of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions (International Energy Agency 2009, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2014). The energy use and CO2 emissions in this sector are predicted to increase 80% by 2050 (International Energy Agency 2009). The major contributors of greenhouse effe... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (5740 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In the context of aviation, this article looks at replacing a ram air turbine (RAT) with a hybrid proton-exchange membrane (PEM) hydrogen/oxygen (H2/O2) fuel cell and ultracapacitor system, starting from a theoretical perspective. The structure we propose has two static power converters: one associated with fuel cells and the other with ultracapacitors. The energy management ... View full abstract»

Aims & Scope

IEEE Electrification Magazine is dedicated to disseminating information on all matters related to microgrids onboard electric vehicles, ships, trains, planes, and off-grid applications. Microgrids refer to an electric network in a car, a ship, a plane or an electric train, which has a limited number of sources and multiple loads. Off-grid applications include small scale electricity supply in areas away from high voltage power networks. Feature articles focus on advanced concepts, technologies, and practices associated with all aspects of electrification in the transportation and off-grid sectors from a technical perspective in synergy with nontechnical areas such as business, environmental, and social concerns.
