In the creation of large electric planes, engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have made a significant advancement. The development of a one-megawatt motor is a significant step toward the eventual production of electric aircraft. According to a press release, the motor has undergone component testing and calculations have demonstrated that it is capable of producing one megawatt of output power.

A major global goal is to reduce carbon emissions to “net zero” by 2050, and the aviation sector is essential to achieving this goal. Carbon emissions from today’s large aircraft carrying passengers and cargo are significant. Existing electric aviation technologies, however, are constrained in size and are unable to take the place of powerful jet engines.

The motors used to power these smaller-scale attempts at fully electric planes can only produce a few hundred kilowatts of power. MIT engineers set out to create a one-megawatt electric motor that could meet the power requirements of larger aircraft in order to overcome this limitation.
