#5 eVTOL Electrical System Design and Compliance
Play • 17 min

Welcome to Talking Aerospace Today – a podcast for the Aerospace & Defense industry. A place that brings the promise of tomorrow’s technology to the ears of our listeners today.

eVTOLs are not only electrically powered but they need an electrical system that’s lean, lightweight, and efficient. They also have to be 110 percent safe - no question about it. So, what are manufacturers doing to ensure they meet these requirements in an efficient manner?

Today, in our fifth and final episode of our "Innovation” podcast series, we'll explore and explain the design and manufacture of an electrical system for today's eVTOL aircraft. We’ll also touch on the importance of power management and why electrical platform weight is so critical to eVTOL design. Of course, all this wouldn’t be possible without a model-based engineering approach so we’ll dive into model-based design and the advantages of this approach when it comes to creating an electrical system for an eVTOL aircraft.

I am your host, Scott Salzwedel, and for the last time in this series, I am joined by Dale Tutt, Vice President of Aerospace & Defense at Siemens Digital Industries Software. We’ll also be joined by and Anthony Nicoli, the Aerospace & Defense Director of Integrated Electrical Systems at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Tony is the Siemens guru of all things electrical in an aircraft.

Please join us as we uncover electrical design considerations for eVTOLs, and how the digital transformation from Siemens addresses these complexities and challenges.
