This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Implementation of all or more electric technologies has the potential of improving the performance of a given aircraft. Savings can manifest through improved engine performance, reduced equipment weight and improved secondary power and systems utilization. Despite the potential benefits and the amount of research invested the concept has not been implemented yet and its impact on the overall performance of the aircraft remains unclear. Adoption of a single form of secondary power and implementation of more or all electric technologies is claimed to offer a number of distinct advantages over the conventional secondary power systems. These claims include the following: 1. Improved engine performance through the optimization of off-takes and elimination of bleed air. These issues is said to become critical as the bypass ratio of the engine increases and the size of the core reduces. However, despite concerns over the capability of high bypass ratio to provide secondary power requirements of future aircraft the claims remain unproven and it is generally believed that off-take penalties are not dependent on the configuration of the engine and can be kept to a minimum if the engine is designed to provide them. 2. Improved system utilization and implementation of more efficient power units. Conventional secondary power systems developed during the years that fuel was relatively fuel was relatively inexpensive and have not been optimized for maximum efficiency. Bleeding air from the engine is largely inefficient and a large amount of power is wasted for no useful purpose. In addition, hydraulics are often sized for loads that are small in duration thus increasing the mass and power requirements of the system. Elimination of conventional hydraulic and bleed air systems could lead to a significant mass reduction. However, the mass and size of the electrical equipment would also increase and these changes must be accounted for. 4. Additional benefits include reduced single typ.
