Flashcards in Electrical Deck (50):
TRU ESS switch
In off position isolates TRU ESS from ESS Bus three
DC BUS TIE switch
Opens DC TIE contacter and both ESS TIE contacters when in the off position
BATT ONE selector knob
On: Connects batt one to DC ESS Bus one
OFF: supplies power to hot batt bus one only
IDG EICAS Messages
Output always displayed even if zero.
If output is out of range or is invalid digits are then replaced by three amber dashes.
IDG EICAS ICON indications
Green: IDG is available and knob in auto position
White: IDG is available and selecter knob in off position or engine not running.
Amber Dash: invalid information
AC GCU Icon indications
Green: GPU connected and GPU button pushed in
White: GPU connected and button is pushed out.
Amber Dashed: invalid information
Components of AC System
ONE AC External power unit
Auto: allows automatic operation of the electrical system.
Off: opens the contacter and isolates the IDG from the perspective AC bus.
Disc: must be held in this position for IDG to disconnect.
Push in, allows automatic operation
Push out, opens and isolates APU from the AC BUS TIE
AC BUS TIES knob
1 or 2 OPEN,,, opens the bus tie contactor segregating the selected side from the other side.
AUTO,,,,, Allows the system operational logic to control the system automatically.
Push in,,,, connects AC GPU to system according to source priority.
Pushed out, isolates GPU from system..
AVAIL,,,, indicates GPU is avail with proper voltage, amps and frequency
IN USE, GPU is powering system.
BATT EICAS ICONS
Green,,,,, Voltage is greater than 18V
White, less than 18 V
Dashed Amber,,,,, invalid information or value is out of range.
Batt icons always displayed
APU START BATT
Batt 2 is isolated to power the APU start bus.
What must be done with GPU push button after each use once APU takes over?
Us the pushed out even if the IN USE light is out. This must be done for the next connection to work.
