Book Description

Electric Aircraft Dynamics: A Systems Engineering Approach surveys engineering sciences that underpin the dynamics, control, monitoring, and design of electric propulsion systems for aircraft. It is structured to appeal to readers with a science and engineering background and is modular in format. The closely linked chapters present descriptive material and relevant mathematical modeling techniques. Taken as a whole, this ground-breaking text equips professional and student readers with a solid foundation for advanced work in this emerging field.

Key Features:

  • Provides the first systems-based overview of this emerging aerospace technology
  • Surveys low-weight battery technologies and their use in electric aircraft propulsion
  • Explores the design and use of plasma actuation for boundary layer and flow control
  • Considers the integrated design of electric motor-driven propellers
  • Includes PowerPoint slides for instructors using the text for classes
