Electric Aircraft System Integration Enabler

EASIER

Electric Aircraft System Integration Enabler

Call for proposal: 
H2020-MG-2019-SingleStage-INEA
Link to CORDIS:
Objectives: 

Challenges presented by aircraft electric propulsion requires the development of new airborne technologies that enable expanding the electrification technology trend already impacting other areas, like ground transportation or the autonomous generation/usage of electricity from renewables, to efficient and economical air transportation.

Those intended technologies must be capable of producing a highly efficient, lightweight, and compact aircraft electrical system that can supply the electric power for propulsion as well as for other uses while keeping electromagnetic emissions under safe limits compatible with airborne equipment operation and human safety. In addition, they shall control heat up of the system by enhanced thermal dissipation through a proper thermal management system.

With this aim, EASIER will bring together a multidisciplinary team in order to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Investigating EMI filtering solutions with less volume and weight.
  2. Investigating EWIS technologies with less radiated EMI, less volume and lower weight.
  3. Improved heat transfer from electrical systems to the aircraft exterior.
  4. Optimization of the integration of electrical systems with significant mutual impact.
  5. Engagement with airframers and regulatory agencies.
  6. System trade-off analysis and technology identification.
  7. Road mapping of hybrid/electric aircraft key enabling technologies in terms of EMI and thermal management.

To achieve the objectives a strong partnership is established among all members of the EASIER consortium from EU and US who will collaborate following a coordinated plan, with the Industrial Advisory Board and other consortium(s) executing areas 1-3 from the call.
