electric propulsion PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 13 electric propulsion PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Investigation of the lifetime limiting effects within electrospray thruster spacecraft propulsion

Supervisory Team.   Dr Charlie Ryan, Dr Alex Wittig. Project description. Typical high performance electric propulsion options for large satellites, such as gridded ion thrusters or Hall Effect thrusters, do not work well for nano satellites. Read more

High precision time-resolved thrust measurement and Two-dimensional plasma plume diagnostics

Supervisory Team: Min Kwan Kim (80%) / Alexander Wittig (20%). Project description. This exciting PhD project offers a unique opportunity to develop a high precision time-resolved thrust balance and optical diagnostics to characterise the spatial distribution of plasma plume generated by a plasma thruster. Read more

Unmanned aerial vehicle thrust optimization with ducted propeller in various flight modes

A clear resurgence in ducted fan research in recent years can be noticed due to the growing interest in UAV/MAV (Unmanned/Micro Aerial Vehicle), PAV (Personal Aerial Vehicle) and electric propulsion. Read more

Low-noise Ducted Propulsion Systems for Next-Gen eVTOL Platforms

Supervisory Team.   Phillip Joseph, Sergi Palleja Cabre and Chaitanya Paruchuri. Project description. Overview. Electrically-powered vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft are poised to revolutionize transportation, contributing significantly to the UK economy. Read more

Convective heat-transfer in turbulent boundary layers

Supervisory Team.   Bharathram Ganapathisubramani and Sean Symon. Project description. The electrification of aircraft as an enabler for achieving our Net-Zero ambitions has been increasingly studied in recent years. Read more

PhD in Thermal route optimization of predictive controls to improve BEV efficiency using AI & ML

Route information has significantly improved the optimization of hybrid vehicle propulsion by determining the most efficient power source for different parts of a journey. Read more

Development of ignition systems for energy systems

There have been consistent efforts in developing more fast and efficient combustion. Microwave discharges are widely used for plasma-assisted ignition of air/fuel mixtures. Read more
