This paper presents design considerations for a low altitude short endurance electric powered ultralight aircraft with solar panels. The paper focuses on the conversion of the ultralight propulsion system from endothermic into electric, discarding the mechanic and dynamic issues from the design, and addressing the sizing consideration principally on the energy management system components. A tool is presented to optimize the choice of the battery and the panel mass.

Abstract

This paper presents design considerations for a low altitude short endurance electric powered ultralight aircraft with solar panels. The paper focuses on the conversion of the ultralight propulsion system from endothermic into electric, discarding the mechanic and dynamic issues from the design, and addressing the sizing consideration principally on the energy management system components. A tool is presented to optimize the choice of the battery and the panel mass.
