The University of Nottingham needed a versatile power system to propel research in their new world leading laboratory.
The UK Electrification of Aerospace Propulsion Facility will cater for electric aircraft developments. Testing electrical machines, motors, controllers and power sources - both individually and as a complete system.
ETPS supplied the University with a modular 3kV/2MW bidirectional power system. Future electric aircraft trends and innovations are often hard to predict at such an early stage of commercialisation. The programming capabilities and reconfigurability of the G5-RSS system is critical to keep the group at the forefront of global research.
Chris Varley, Propulsion Centre Manager for the PEMC, explained “Future trends and technology breakthroughs are often unpredictable. So the programming capabilities and reconfigurability of the G5-RSS system is critical.” Click here to read the full story.
