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, followed by numerous design exercises that cover the assembly of systems that deliver, synergistically, the desired performance outcomes. Taken as a whole, this groundbreaking 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
