Advancing regional hybrid electric propulsion for more sustainable aviation

The development of a CS25 class hybrid H2 fuel cell electric propulsion system requires a technology maturation and validation program with a multilevel roadmap of design and testing platforms which ensure verification from the components to the subsystem modules and finally to the aircraft system. This presentation shows a view on architectures and key technology areas under development for such a propulsion system, to support the EU’s SRIA objectives.
