Abstract

This paper presents ongoing research that aims to develop novel synthesis and analysis methods for revolutionary electric propulsion and aircraft architecture designs. The technical challenges associated with a transition to an era of electric flight are discussed as the motivation behind the creation of a new design and decision-support environment for revolutionary aircraft with revolutionary propulsion architectures. The thrust areas of electric propulsion modeling, synthesis, and a generalized, energy-based aircraft sizing method are presented as the key elements of the proposed environment. Lastly, trade studies that facilitate decision-making and explorative research are identified as items for future work.
