Development of manned and unmanned solar powered aircraft has attracted attention of several agencies over the past decade because of their promising potential in military and civilian applications. The most noteworthy examples are Dr. Paul MacCready’s Solar Challenger [1, 2], that covered the English Channel on July 7th, on solar powerFile Size: KB.

Design of Solar Powered Airplanes for Continuous Flight given in the framework of the ETHZ lecture “Aircraft and Spacecraft Systems: Design, Modeling and Control” partially included in a forthcoming Springer book on “Advances in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, State of the art and the road to autonomy” A. Noth, R. Siegwart, W. Engel Version Each solar array element was divided into 44 layers. The shape and mesh distribution of the solar powered airship is shown in Fig. 5. The m long solar array is located at 30 m after the nose and 10 m above the central horizontal plane of the : Qiumin Dai, Lin Cao, Gaogao Zhang, Xiande Fang. A MATLAB® code was first developed to model, size and provide optimum duct dimensions. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) was also used to investigate the lift and drag characteristics of the modified airfoil. Heat transfer analysis on the solar array using CFD was performed to obtain solar cell temperatures of the baseline and modified by: 1. Solar Powered Aircraft 1. Solar Power, Basics 2.
