Megawatt Electrical Motor Designed By MIT Engineers Could Help Electrify Aviation

Credit to Author: Guest Contributor| Date: Sun, 11 Jun 2023 03:00:51 +0000

Aviation’s huge carbon footprint could shrink significantly with electrification. To date, however, only small all-electric planes have gotten off the ground. Their electric motors generate hundreds of kilowatts of power. To electrify larger, heavier jets, such as commercial airliners, megawatt-scale motors are required. These would be propelled by hybrid or turbo-electric propulsion systems where an […]
