The need for extended range operation on hybrid electric flight vehicles requires on-board power generation. Turbine-based range extender power generation systems are being considered as a viable option to charge aerial vehicles’ batteries, extending the range and providing additional power for acceleration and auxiliaries. Gas turbine range extenders with Calnetix Technologies’ high-speed starter generator provide the highest power-to-weight ratio, ultra-low emissions, the ability to operate on alternative fuels and unmatched reliability. Calnetix Magnaforce™ permanent magnet (PM) motor generators are the optimal solution for the next generation of hybrid-electric flight platforms and E-VTOLs (Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing).
