The results to be expected from this project are:
– improvement in aerodynamic efficiency of the cycloidal rotor for application in large vehicles
– integration of low-weight electric drives into the cycloidal propulsion system
– analysis of the more promising configurations for airframe cycloidal propulsion integration
– assessment, and optimization, of energy necessities for the novel propulsion system
– a green energy approach to the PECyT system, by being powered by solar photovoltaic or fuel cells
These results will be achieved using a multidisciplinary scientific approach. The expertise involved include:
advanced unsteady CFD simulations, plasma boundary layer control, aeroelasticity modeling, novel
superconducting electric drives, and the necessary integration with the airplane manufacture  industry. This will demonstrate the feasibility of the system, by defining its operative range and the possible limitations connected to its application.
