Abstract:
The paper presents the development of a multi-disciplinary modeling framework to predict the system-level performance of a diverse range of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. A key feature of this framework is its modular architecture where the various components are modeled separately and then integrated together based on the aircraft configuration. This modular approach enables the user to analyze various conventional as well as unconventional aircraft architectures by selecting and arranging different pre-existing component models within the framework. The framework comprises four key modules: control system, powertrain, aerodynamics, and flight dynamics, each representing a specific aspect of the system. These modules are further broken down into component/subsystem models, utilizing a combination of physics-based and semi-empirical modeling techniques. The subsystem models are validated using existing experimental data. The framework's modularity is demonstrated by modeling three different multirotor configurations for a given mission while predicting the performance of each subsystem. The proposed framework provides a powerful tool for eVTOL aircraft designers and engineers to predict the aircraft's performance and improve their design.
