Abstract

This paper surveys the proposed solutions for the design of an ultra-light Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, showing the most recent advances in technology for the power system of the design. In particular this paper focuses on the electrical components of the project, showing a brief review of the single objects and their applicability for the design of a Solar-Powered Airplane. The aim of this paper is to collect all the useful information for people who wants to begin a design process for an ultra light aerial vehicle with electric propulsion system and a solar energy conversion source, giving basic information about the state of the art of the UAV projects and the requirements for the power system management elements.
