The sky is the limit for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) projects, which are inspiring revolutionary innovations in electric flight. However, as with electric and hybrid-electric aircraft in general, electric-powered vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft, rotorcraft, commercial drones, and personal air vehicles (PAVs) employ significant amounts of electrical power to enable vehicle takeoff and maintain flight.
As a result, designers face many electrical interconnect challenges when handling high voltages and high kW peak output for electric propulsion motors, inverters, controllers, batteries, infotainment, and sensors. To deploy successful prototypes and products rapidly, designers benefit by understanding these challenges and how to “follow-the-wire” using TE technologies and expertise to solve them.
As a go-to innovation partner, TE offers this overview of an evolving portfolio of products that can handle the significant power requirements of electric flight.
