With the call to make flight more sustainable and environmentally friendly, comes the need for propulsion systems that enable reduced fuel consumption and emissions – without compromising aircraft endurance and performance.
We’re working with @TecnamAircraft and @BRP-Rotax to develop a prototype parallel-hybrid electric powertrain to achieve exactly that.
Introducing The ‘H3PS’ project – ‘high power’, ‘hybrid powertrain’ and ‘high-scalability aircraft’ – which involves equipping a 4-seat Tecnam P2010 with a parallel-hybrid electric powertrain, believed to be the first of its kind ever developed for general aviation. The project introduces advanced technology for a smaller power class, while being scalable for larger general aviation aircraft.
The project has successfully tackled the challenges presented by parallel-hybrid electric architectures, with the purpose of de-risking a technology that is novel to aerospace propulsion applications and to further mature it into a commercially viable solution. We have been responsible for the electrical part of the parallel-hybrid electric propulsion system.
