Modellering och simulering av hybridisering av framdrivningssystem för ett lätt fastvingat flygplan (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Propulsive hybridisation fits in with the sustainable development policies of many companies which are part of the transportation industry. Actually, it makes it possible either to reduce fuel consumption or to improve the aircraft performance at a fixed fuel burn. However, the current technologies of batteries restrain a more regular use in light aviation. For this project this issue is confirmed as both the quasi-static performance assessment and the dynamic studies show that the endurance objective cannot be improved with Li/Ion batteries. However, it is possible to act directly on the engine performance by placing a thermal energy recovery system on exhaust gas pipes to take advantage of their high temperatures, greatly boosting the aircraft performance in cruise.

Abstract [sv]

Hybridisering av framdrivningssystem passar in med hållbar utvecklingspolitik av många företag inom transportbranschen. Faktiskt tillåter det antingen att minska bränsleförbrukningen eller att förbättra flygplans prestandorna. Ändå är aktuella batteritekniken fortfarande ett problem för en mer frekvent användning av hybridisering förlättflyget. För det här projektet bekräftas det eftersom kvasistatiska och dynamiska studierna visar att hybridsystemet med aktuella Li/Ion batterierna förbättrar inte flygdurationen. Ändå är det möjligt att ingripa på motorprestandorna genom att återanvända värmeenergin av avgas för att förbättra flygdurationen.
