novel thermal energy conversion technologies for advanced electric air vehiclesFuture air vehicles will increasingly incorporate electrical powertrains that require very tight integration of power, propulsion, thermal, and airframe technologies. This paper provides an overview of a new category of thermal energy conversion technologies that can be used to provide highly efficient turbo-generation and electric propulsion, while synergistically managing and recycling both the low grade waste heat from electrical components and the high grade waste heat from engine components.
