TX03: Aerospace Power and Energy Storage

Taxonomy Category Summary

This taxonomy category is divided into three main areas: power generation and energy conversion, energy storage, and power management and distribution. Power generation and energy conversion identifies methods of generating power (chemical, solar, nuclear, and other advanced concepts for generating power) as well as energy conversion technology (static and dynamic conversion, as well as other advanced power conversion concepts). Energy storage includes methods of storing energy after it has been generated: through batteries, fuel cells, or other advanced concepts for energy storage. Power management and distribution focuses on technologies that manage and control electric power generated from a source. This includes control algorithms, models, and sensors that control aerospace vehicles, components necessary for electric power transmission (switchgear, wiring, etc.) and fault protection, electrical power conversion and regulation (power regulators, etc.), and other advanced electric parts that help the management and distribution of power (high-power and harsh environment parts).
