Abstract [en]

At present, there is a great focus on electric cars, many interesting inventions and innovations in the electric vehicle industry, but significantly less focus on electric aircraft or more environmentally friendly aircraft. [1]

The report includes an analysis of cooling and heating systems of electric aircraft as this is the main area of ​​the work. There are several cooling systems and heating systems, but this work focuses only on small aircraft, which means that the systems available are limited due to the size importance of the systems. These systems should keep the batteries at constant temperature during all operations the aircraft is going through. As the effect on batteries may vary depending on the temperature.

The vision of this work is to find a solution to how the battery can maintain constant temperature for a powered aircraft.

The work also includes a study on different types of batteries and its specifications. The study also includes various battery cooling types that can be installed in a powered aircraft.

The method of this work is to collect facts in the background, then analyze the fact under the method and compare the different aircrafts, batteries and different cooling as well as heating systems that may be suitable for an electric aircraft.

The main result of the report landed on the Extra 330LE aircraft. The choice of battery is lithium ion batteries, due to the high power and light weight the batteries have. Both heating and cooling systems selected for both Extra 330LE and Lithium Ion batteries are direct air cooling and insulation system Tesla uses.

The report summarizes the possible cooling and heating systems that an electric powered airplane can have for best performance, in other words, how will these cooling and heating systems affect the aircraft, such as the weight, cooling and heating ability and if the aircraft is capable of having such heat or cooling system.
