The scores of attempts from all over the World to use the energy of Hydrogen as fuel aboard aircraft (AC), normally, have been confined to solving the problems of building more efficient systems for Hydrogen storage/transportation. At that, no efficient solutions have been ever found… There exist several reasons for that:
If one looks at the internal arrangement of equipment for using cryogenic fuel (hydrogen) aboard Tu-155 plane, it falls into place right away that suchlike projects will be never implemented in mass production with the existing systems of storage/transportation of cryogenic fuel (hydrogen). More than half of the plane’s usable space is occupied by the system of storage/transportation of cryogenic fuel (hydrogen). At that, this system features an extremely low weight content of cryogenic fuel, e.g., for hydrogen it is around 7-8% wt. In turn this upgrading has provided for not more than 2 flight hours on cryogenic fuel (hydrogen), accordingly, the maximum flight range has amounted to about 1,700 km with cruise speed of 850 km/h (without taking into account the standard fuel system on kerosene).
CNT Technology can replace the honeycomb structure of the wing. At the same time, CNT will be both a hydrogen storage and a frame for the construction of an aircraft fuselage.
CNT technology helps effect upgrading of the fuel system WITHOUT INTRODUCING CHANGES INTO MAIN STRUCTURES – PLANE FUSELAGE of both already operated and newly built AC in the production line. In this case the plane acquires the breakthrough more efficient flight performance.
CNT Technology helps improve weight, flight-and-technical and economical characteristics, of both subsonic and supersonic planes.
CNT Technology completely solves the problem of asymmetric fuel consumption! A permanent ideally balanced center of mass of the fuel system (uniform distribution of mass of fuel due to Hydrogen gaseous condition).
The application of CNT© hydrogen fuel cells instead of Li-ion, LiPo storage batteries will help provide the global technological breakthrough in the development of electric transport on the planet. Tesla Model X P90D electric car has been taken as a dramatic example of efficiency of CNT© technologies as compared with the existing Li-ion, LiPo storage batteries.
