The new generation of wide-body aircraft, as well as the recently 24h autonomy demonstrated solar cell powered proof-of-concept, share a highly sophisticated electric power management, together with an increased number of all electric actuators. High power efficiency of generators, control devices and actuators as well as real-time power balancing with respect to the requirements, directly contribute to reduction of fuel consumption, and therefore pave the way to the green aircraft concepts. But increased potential sensitivity to electromagnetic compatibility hazards has to be accounted for, and even more since composite structure is expected to spread out at the same time.

Battery powered cars have already their equivalent for light general aviation, and state-of-the art technologies for more electric transport aircraft are expected to improve significantly in the next future, thanks to various on-going dedicated R&D programmes . Basic research for example in the fields of power semi-conductors or energy storage is also foreseen to have a strong impact later.

Application for transport aircraft, but also business jets, military, general aviation, rotorcraft, as well as UAS, will be considered.

Following a successful national conference in Toulouse in January 2009, the organisers of this November 2012 European edition are inviting you to join us. 

The event is organized by tSEE and 3AF (GR Bordeaux Aquitaine et 3AF Midi-Pyrénées)
