Vicor releases new podcast episode

23 November 2022 News

Vicor has announced the release of episode 3 in its podcast series on world-changing technologies, Powering Innovation. This episode examines the growth, challenges and benefits of electrifying aircraft and hybrid-electric planes.

In this third instalment of Powering Innovation, Robert Gendron of Vicor talks to Ed Lovelace, CTO of Ampaire, about electrified aircraft, from the use of short-haul cargo flights to supersonic transport methods. In this episode, Gendron and Lovelace examine the power requirements of a fully electrified aircraft and try to imagine a path for commercialised aircraft to transition to cleaner, electric power.

“This episode highlights electric aircraft opportunities which are often overshadowed by today’s electric vehicle advancements,” said Gendron. “Ed lends a lot of insight and credibility from Ampaire’s success about what really goes into designing new hybrid aircraft. There are many considerations from a power electronics perspective. We are very proud that Vicor modules, with higher density and lighter weight, can support this type of world-changing application.”

The Vicor Powering Innovation podcast is available with new episodes released monthly on all major podcast providers, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Google Podcasts.
