The University of Nottingham has been awarded £7.6 million towards the development of the £16.8 million test and validation facility for aerospace electric and hybrid propulsion systems. The new award will see the commissioning of 10 new fully instrumented test cells able to validate a range of MW-class motor and generator drivetrains to cover aircraft platforms from                                                                                 UAM to SMR.


The open-access test facility will allow for greater collaborative research across the UK-ARC partnership as well as support UK based industry partners in their development programmes. The facility will be hosted within the new Power Electronics and Electrical Machines Centre at the University of Nottingham.
