08:55 - 09:20
Distributed propulsion promises energy and emission savings as well as operational benefits for future aircraft. The key to realize such unconventional aircraft concepts is a light-weight and efficient hybrid-electrical propulsion system. Attendees will be introduced to the components of such systems and the technological challenges. Successful aircraft testing will be shown paving the way for commercial applications.
Dr. Andreas Reeh is the Head of electromagnetic design at SIEMENS eAircraft. The business segment develops high power density electrical machines for aircraft propulsion. Leading a team of engineers and designers, he drives the technology assessment, conceptual design, development and testing of motors and generators.
