Hybrid/Turbo-Electric Activities and Experience at Georgia Tech
An overview of hybrid electric modeling activities at Georgia Tech will be provided with an emphasis on work related to the OSU led University Leadership Initiative (ULI) project on Electric Propulsion: Challenges and Opportunities. A background on the pros and cons of using electrified propulsion for aerospace will be discussed, followed by examples of prior and current trade studies. Considerations such as lifecycle energy consumption and CO2 will also be presented.
