Methodology

The project was divided into stages; to facilitate and monitor the progress of work, a Ghannt chart was made.

The first stage involved selection of the appropriate reference plane which would was both small enough to be converted into and electrical airplane and yet large enough to be commercial. The Cessna Skyhawk manufactured by Cessna in USA met these requirements ad hence was chosen. The energy and power requirements of the old combustion engine in the reference plane were studied and an appropriate electrical engine chosen as a replacement. Various storage media were shortlisted to serve as the main source of energy to be supplemented by PV cells. A hydrogen fuel cell-Li ion combination was selected among the various choices. Selection was made based on the media with the power density and environmental impacts with greater emphasis on energy density.

Finally ,the life cycle of hydrogen was accessed to determine how this new fuel source will influence the society
