Turbo- and Hybrid-Electrified Aircraft Propulsion Concepts for Commercial TransportThis review of aircraft electric propulsion architectures conveys that several aircraft system studies have indicated a potential benefit associated with using electrical systems to replace or augment the traditional fuel-based propulsion system. This exciting new approach for designing aircraft opens the door for new configurations. It is also important to convey that this field of study is in its infancy and much improvement is required across the breadth of supporting technologies if the promise of these aircraft concepts is to be realized.
