This paper is about investigating the fuel consumption of passenger aircraft with conventional bleed-air driven Environmental Control System (ECS) and aircraft with equivalent electrical systems. A framework has been developed in MATLAB to run simulations under various conditions to study the passenger-scaling effect and impact of subsystem weight.
