The concept of a More Electric Aircraft (MEA) demands a highly optimized airframe power system which is achieved by replacing pneumatic and hydraulic systems with energy efficient electrical systems. With increasing power offtake requirements, the More Electric Engine (MEE) could play a key role in future MEA, where more electrical power will be drawn from(More)
The Flux Switching Machine is one of the novel topologies within the hybrid machine class. It has many advantages such as flux focusing effect, compatibility with simple power converters, high fault tolerance with independent concentrated armature windings, mechanical robustness due to its simple salient pole rotor and high power density. With such(More)
With the increase of power offtake requirements, it is proposed that the more electric engine (MEE) draws electrical power from a generator mounted directly on the gas turbine shaft-line without the use of a gearbox. It is expected that this arrangement will improve the power density and reliability of the whole system. The challenges include limited(More)
