Project period


The Ohio State University (OSU) teamed up with Safran Electrical & Power in Ohio and the University Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) to develop high-speed brushless doubly-fed machines (BDFMs) for aviation propulsion application using a direct current distribution power system. OSU leads the electromagnetic design of the electric machine, power converter design and drive system control algorithm design. Safran leads the mechanical design and thermal design of the machine and builds the machine prototypes.
