Abstract [en]

The conceptual design stage of an aircraft involves many uncertainties with regard to prediction of weight of systems. The current trend is that electrical systems increasingly replace hydraulic and pneumatic systems in an aircraft. This leads to greater uncertainty in weight, size and power requirement prediction.

This work is an attempt at developing a sizing tool that will allow users to estimate the power requirements and weight of electrical systems for a given size of an aircraft specified either by passenger capacity or by aircraft operating empty weight or by maximum take-off weight.

As with all predictive tools, the results of this work are based on currently available data, i.e., the specification of existing aircraft. This collection of specification of existing aircrafts would constitute the data library. The accuracy of the result of this work depends greatly on the variety of aircrafts and the level of detail for which the data is available.

The tool is made in Microsoft Excel with some codes made in VBA to perform Excel calculations.
