ZeroAvia leverages Ansys simulation solutions to develop hydrogen-electric powertrain

ZeroAvia is leveraging Ansys simulation solutions in the development of its hydrogen-electric powertrain developed to reduce aircraft emissions.

Hydrogen-electric propulsion technology can produce 90% less lifecycle emissions than jet fuel-powered turbines, and ZeroAvia predicts its powertrain will result in substantially lower operating costs.

ZeroAvia demonstrated the potential for zero-emission flight through flying the world’s largest hydrogen-electric powered aircraft, a Piper Malibu.

Engineers leveraged Ansys multiphysics simulations — including structural analysis, fluid dynamics, FSI, electromagnetic, and electromechanical analysis — to help make the electric-powered plane a reality.
