Reduced fuel consumption of airplanes for skydiving (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this bachelor thesis was to find a concept which reduces the fuel consumption of propeller powered airplanes with piston engines that are meant for skydiving. The concept resulted in a hybrid solution in which an electric motor and a piston engine power the same propeller, and where the piston engine power the electric motor as a generator during the aircraft’s decent. The theoretically fuel consumption was reduced, although the difference was so small it is questionable whether or not it is a profitable solution with current technology.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med det här är ett kandidatexamensarbetet var att ta fram en mer bränsleeffektiv konceptlösning för propellerdrivna plan med kolvmotor som används för fallskärmshoppning. Konceptet resulterade i en hybridlösning där både en elmotor och en kolvmotor driver samma propeller, och kolvmotorn kan driva elmotorn som en generator under planets nedstigning. Den teoretiska bränslekonsumtionen blev lägre, dock blev skillnaden så pass liten att det är tveksamt om det med dagens teknik är lönsamt.
