Subsystem Design

Table of Contents

The subsystem design phase is a smaller section of the overall detail design phase. Overall the goal of this phase is to create, choose, and come up with specific ideas for sections of the system.

Question: How is power calculated from a propeller’s thrust?

Assumptions:

Analysis:

Power Equation

Power Equation

Below is a spreadsheet filled with power calculations derived from examples from the previous thrust calculations. It should be noted that the higher the thrust, then the higher the power.
