More Electric Aircraft 2017 (MEA 2017) - Bordeaux
01-02/02/17 au Palais des Congrès, Bordeaux
More Electric Aircraft technology has continued to develop, mature and enter into service over recent years with impressive advances being seen in all of the domains across the related aerospace technologies, including the flight of all-electric prototypes. The MEA2017 conference will showcase state of the art developments and upcoming technologies, to be presented by representatives from worldwide industry and academia.
Building on the technologies developed for the first generation of more-electric platforms such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787, these experts will discuss and review how the adoption of more electrical technology in design and operation is being driven by strong advances in many of the key building blocks such as wide bandgap devices, energy storage technologies, new manufacturing processes, power generation and distribution architectures, and the adoption of new materials. Whilst much work has already been demonstrated on more-electrical platforms, there is much more to do to further increase the power density and improve the reliability whilst making the most of the natural advantages of electrical technology, topics which will be addressed in-depth at the conference.
