Preeti is a PhD researcher with Rolls-Royce UTC in the department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. Her research work is based on Integrated Electrical-Material Systems for New Power Systems and the Electrification of Aerospace. Aircraft electrical power systems have become increasingly complex in recent years in order to deliver greater levels of performance and to capitalise on technology advances, and are now also being directly integrated with advanced carbon fibre composite materials. This increasing level of system sophistication and interdependence brings additional challenges to the development and delivery of future aerospace platforms. At the same time, such developments offer the potential to achieve system performance levels that will accelerate the electrification of air transport. This research project will focus on the investigation of new solutions for the effective integration of innovative electrical power systems within aerospace structures, utilising the properties of advanced and emerging composite materials. It will thus contribute to breakthroughs that will accelerate the realisation of commercial aircraft that are lighter, safer, more efficient and produce lower emissions.
