Enhanced aircraft electriﬁcation is one of the main trends in the short-to-medium-term technology roadmaps in the aviation sector. The success of a progressively more electric aircraft has the potential to enable, and guide, the longer term goal of a medium-haul mild-hybrid and/or full electric aircraft. Enhanced aircraft electriﬁcation is currently the most promising trend to achieve and set the baselines for the step-change advancements necessary to curb local and global emissions as well as the noise caused by the substantial growth of air transport.
This paper presents the redesign of an electrically driven mixed ﬂow transonic compressor by using a 3D Inverse Design methodology. The compressor will be used for an active high-lift system application that aims to delay the onset of stall and thus contributing to the reduction of both the aircraft noise footprint and the impact of aviation emission on local air quality.
