In order to increase the range of hybrid-electric aircraft, British engine maker Rolls-Royce is actively researching turbogenerator technology.
The company claims that turbogenerator technology will be scaled to accommodate a power range of 500 kW to 1200 kW.
According to the business, this will allow more people to travel farther on low- to net-emissions aircraft in the future.
The new system will also be employed with hydrogen combustion and sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), according to Rolls-Royce.
As part of our strategy, we aim to provide our customers with a comprehensive sustainable solution.
By using our turbogenerator technology, we can expand the routes that electric aircraft can sustain, said Rob Watson, president of Rolls Royce Electrical.
According to Rolls-Royce, it is committed to ensuring that all of its products will be net zero compatible by 2050 and that all of its new vehicles will be by 2030.
