“Electrified Aircraft Propulsion”


The CASI Toronto Branch February meeting will be held on Thursday, February 28, 2019.  Our guest speaker will be Martin Abramian, Senior Engineering Specialist, Bombardier Aerospace, who will give a presentation on “Electrified Aircraft Propulsion”.  

Aviation currently makes up about 2-2.5% of the total global CO2 emission. Significant efforts have been focused in recent years on propulsion and energy technologies which may have the potential to reduce global emissions within the next 20-30 years. And since 90% of CO2 emissions from global commercial aircraft are created by large aircraft (more than 100 seats), most research efforts are focused on technologies applicable to this aircraft category. There has been significant investment in Electrified Aircraft Propulsion (EAP) research, in terms of conceptual designs and system studies, to improve the fuel efficiency, emission, and noise levels in commercial transport aircraft. In general, these studies include the implementation of an all-electric, a hybrid-electric, or a turboelectric configuration. Please select the link above for more information.

Please join us, everyone is welcome.  There is a $5 charge for non-CASI members (payable at the door)  Attendees are requested to register at: https://casitoronto_2019_02_28.eventbrite.ca
