Abstract

In this paper, the problem of maximizing the flight time of an airplane with an electrical power plant (AEP) by the optimization of the mass of the accumulator in cases of fixed and non‐fixed airframe is considered. Variants of high (turbulent flow) and low (laminar flow) Reynolds numbers are taken into account. Dependence of flight time on airplane parameters is obtained. The behaviour of flight time as a function of accumulator mass near the maximum is also investigated. A comparison between the results obtained and the data for the existing AEP is made. On the basis of the results obtained, the influence of aircraft parameters on flight time is analyzed.
