Virtual UAV Manufacturers Meet Up
||ePropelled is a leader in magnetic engineering innovations that define the future of electric propulsion. Our patented intelligent motors, generators, and motor controllers
are software controlled and create new levels of energy and system-level efficiencies in aerospace, electric vehicles, and industrial applications.
Webinar Description: UAV designers must consider a variety of factors when determining the specifications of their aircraft. Mission parameters will determine the payload requirements and the overall size of the vehicle. The propulsion system must be configured to support these requirements but understanding the details of propulsion systems can be complex. During the webinar, we will help designers understand how to balance these competing needs. Attendees will learn:
- How peak power differs from continuous power
- What performance curves really tell you
- How operating temperature and altitude are interrelated
- Why power to weight ratio may be more important than weight alone
- What you need to know about efficiency ratings
Speaker:Dr. Nabeel Shirazee, Global CTO & MD
Speaker Biography:Nabeel graduated from Leicester University in 1990 where he studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering. An M.Sc. in magnetic engineering followed at Cardiff University where he continued his Ph.D. studies and developed a permanent magnet lifting system that was patented by Cardiff University. His keen interest in magnetics led to a patented magnetic levitation system, which was awarded the “World’s No 1 Invention” at INPEX in the USA. In 1999 he founded Electronica, a magnetics research & design consultancy. Since then he has been involved with various challenging projects, including the design of an actuator motor for a British aerospace company. He also licensed the magnetic levitation technology to a Company in France.
