Development and manufacturing roadmaps for high-performance electrical machines

Innovative technologies and manufacturing processes are key in developing propulsion drivetrains which can meet the demanding requirements for more-electric flight. The presentation will cover roadmaps for key enabling technologies and manufacturing processes to enable wider adoption of electrified drivetrains. Cross-sectoral learnings from automotive and other industries will be brought to bear. A number of case studies of technology demonstrators will be presented to highlight how innovative roadmaps can impact key performance metrics.
