This project will provide a full technology appreciation of the power density and efficiency of HTS machines based on state-of-the-art MgB2 manufacturing technologies. It will also provide a technology forecast for the performance of HTS machines up to 2050. The technical evaluation and forecast will provide essential information to show how MgB2 superconducting machines can fit into the roadmap of electric aircraft development.
