Distributed Electric Propulsion, a technology requiring Multi-Disciplinary Aircraft Design: La propulsion électrique distribuée, une technologie qui requiert la conception multidisciplinaire d'aéronef

Abstract : All electric aircraft using Distributed Electric Propulsion (DEP) is an active field of research changing the traditional aircraft design methods. The use of distributed propulsion allows better propulsion airframe integration, enables synergy between aerodynamic and propulsion systems and the use of differential thrust to increase control authority. The result is a strong coupling between propulsion and other aircraft design disciplines making the design of such an aircraft dependent on multi-disciplinary design framework. The use of co-design methods and optimisation framework can significantly help the designer to explore the design space solution. In this objective, the study of flight control with differential thrust and small vertical tail is undertaken. It has been found that not only models to capture interaction phenomenons are needed but also the definition of new sizing flight conditions are required.
