More-electric is a platform being widely adopted by the current generation of aircraft. It offers significant benefits in terms of fuel savings and flexibility of airframe design, as well as passenger comfort. The application of a motor drive to facilitate an aircraft’s on-ground operations has been well studied but as yet no solution has come to market for civil aerospace. This paper documents a transverse flux machine topology for use in short-haul aircraft, where current inefficiency can be bettered through use of an electrical machine. Simulation results are presented for two machine designs using different approaches to the challenging specification. Information regarding the challenges associated with building such a machine design are also discussed.
