Russia was the first in the world conducted inspections electromotive installation, created on the basis of technologies of high-temperature superconductivity and is powered completely from the battery, told Last news at the Foundation for advanced studies.
There commented that during the tests the power of the engine was provided only by specially designed batteries high power. Testing was conducted in a simulated take-off and landing charge and discharge the battery in flight and emergency modes.
in the future, tested the integrated power system will be applied from the experimental aircraft hybrid powerplant. Her, for its part, develops the Central Institute of aviation motors named Baranov. Check the hybrid power plant of the aircraft is scheduled for the 2020-2021 years.
The project is implemented, as explained in the advanced research Foundation, to create a fully electric aircraft and helicopters, different from the existing models of aircraft with more advanced performance characteristics.
the overall Project of the advanced research Foundation and CJSC "Superox" in the creation of high-temperature electric motor on the superconductors started in the early winter of 2016. Implemented technologies provide the opportunity to create an "all-electric" aircraft such as air taxis, vertical take-off and landing and electric ships. During a project for demonstration of technologies designed samples of motors of 50 kW and five kW.
