< return to list
Starts: 05-03-2023
Location: Online Opportunity


The SAE AE-7 Aerospace Electrical Power & Equipment committee addresses all facets of aerospace electrical power systems–design, testing, measurement, procedures, and in-service experience. It develops standards and specifications relative to the generation, conversion, load management, and utilization of electric power in aerospace vehicles. The group is comprised of three subcommittees dedicated to creating, preparing, and maintaining all relevant specifications, standards, and requirements for aerospace electrical power and equipment. These subcommittees include:

  • AE-7A - Electric Machines and Devices (Fuel cell)
  • AE-7B  - Power Management and Distribution
  • AE-7C -  Electrical Systems
  • AE-7D - Aircraft Energy Storage and Charging
  • AE-7EU -  Europe
  • AE-7M  - Aerospace Model Based Engineering
  • AE-7P - Protective and Control Devices

 Participants in the SAE AE-7 committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government, academia, and others across the aerospace and defense industries.
