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 need to marry a complex range of choices within UAV systems that affect each other and the final design. No decisions should be made in isolation. It is important to balance competing needs and understand the role of mission parameters in making design decisions. This demands not only knowledge of the payload and the overall vehicle size requirements, but also understanding of the different motors, propellers, motor controllers and battery packs used at different voltages.
Another important aspect of the design is the power requirements. Designers may not have a clear understanding of how peak power differs from continuous power and how to use performance curves for the most efficient system.
As a result, the propulsion system must be configured to support various requirements in order to obtain the maximum performance out of the motors and motor controllers while considering the fact that other details of the design can be very complex and have a significant impact on the UAV efficiency. The ultimate aim is to maximize the flying time of the UAV.
This presentation explains how to pick:
- right propeller
- the right motor
- the right air motor controller
- the right voltage
- the right battery
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.
