Preface
PrefaceModern aircraft and aerospace vehicles are today more reliant on electrical and electronic systems than ever before. The "more electric airplane" is a design concept that enhances the use of electric power to replace traditional hydraulic, pneumatic, and other systems found on traditional planes. Aircraft such as the Boeing B-787 and Airbus A-380 embraced this concept in order to improve aircraft efficiencies and increase performance. The more electric airplane design concepts have also found their way into light business jets and single-engine trainer/personnel aircraft. Today, there are more electrical and electronic systems found on aircraft than ever before; for this reason all design, engineering, and technical personnel employed in the aerospace industry must have a solid understanding of the materials discussed in this text.
