On-going research and investments in air transportation are driven by the ambition to increase the efficiency of aircraft, reducing fuel consumption and hence carbon emission. Another ambition is to reduce operating costs and to increase reliability. Given the high demand for air transportation and its expected growth, these challenges are of major importance. Recent developments for pursuing these critical requirements concerned the electrification of aircraft systems which significantly increased electrical power needs and impacted aircraft power architecture. More electrical technology is being driven by strong advances in power electronic devices, high efficiency power generators, advanced actuation systems, energy storage technologies, new manufacturing processes, new power generation and distribution architectures. Whilst many concepts have already been demonstrated on more-electrical platforms, developments on more electric aircraft systems are subject to on-going research programmes of major importance. There is much more to do to challenge the power density and improve the reliability while taking the best of the intrinsic advantages of electrical technology. New research programmes in Europe and beyond are also pushing innovative propulsion concepts, all electric, hybrid or turboelectric, potentially distributed. The design for this future generation of more electric propulsion aircraft challenges not only structure and aerodynamics but also power distribution, energy storage, thermal management, reliability and certification all of which will be addressed during the conference. 
Following the successful European conference held in Bordeaux in February 2017, the organisers of MEA2019 invite industry and research representatives to contribute to this new exciting edition in Toulouse, and to share ideas, lessons learnt and solutions relating to technological developments as well as future concepts associated to more/all electrical aircraft. Transport aircraft, light aircraft, unmanned aircraft, fixed wing as well as rotorcraft, will be considered, either for commercial, military or private use.
 
An industrial exhibition organized together with the conference will give opportunity to the audience to visit  booths where labs and industry will highlight their latest achievement related to MEA. Furthermore, MEA2019 will be held in parallel with the DECIELEC event (www.decielec.com) and registration to MEA2019 conference will give the opportunity to attend freely this industrial exhibition with more than 100 booths on connected & embedded systems, power electronics and energy systems management.
 

LATEST NEWS

More than 70 abstracts have been received responding to the call for paper; following the reviewing process led by the program committee half of them are already accepted, the remaining ones still have to be completed or revised according to the reviewers comments.
Such figure is promising for a successful conference; its final program will combine invited presentations during plenary sessions, highly interactive poster sessions, as well as keynotes delivered by managers coming from major European aeronautical industries and labs. 
Registration for the industrial exhibition has already started in such a way that the attendees at the conference will also benefit an extensive vision of on-going product developments.
 

The 2-days programme will mostly rely upon the following topics: 

1.    Hybrid/All Electric Aircraft: architectures, management, operations
2.    Propulsion systems, subsystems and equipment for Hybrid/All Electric Aircraft
3.    Electrification of non-propulsive loads
4.    Power generation
5.    Power conversion 
6.    Energy storage and regeneration
7.    Power distribution and circuit protection
8.    Power and energy system architectures
9.    EMC management and thermal management
10.  Maintenance and operability
11.  Reliability and health monitoring
12.  Certification, operation and safety for Hybrid/All Electric Aircraft
13.  Standardisation of new components
14.  Testing facilities for high power electric aircraft
