Where is the hook up for the ground cart?

right side near nose gear.

7

What are two important principles for power on the 737?

different sources of AC power cannot be paralleled.
connecting a different source automatically disconnects and existing electrical power source.

8

What is the purpose of the AC and DC metering panel?

display AC and DC voltage and amperage and AC freq. Test functions are used by mx.

9

When does the BATT DISCHARGE light illuminate?

excessive discharge detected.

10

When does the TR UNIT light illuminate?

Ground: any TR unit has failed.
Flight: either TR1 has failed or both TR2 and TR3 have failed.

11

When does the ELEC light illuminate?

on the ground only: a fault in the DC power system or the stby power system.

12

When the BATTERY switch is off, and no other power sources connected, power is removed from which buses?

Battery Bus
Switched Hot Battery Bus
DC Stby Bus

AC Stby Bus

13

When the BATTERY switch is off, and other power sources are connected, power is removed from which buses?

Battery Bus and switched hot battery bus.

14

What does the CAB/UTIL switch do?

switches power on or off to galleys and cabin equipment when the AC transfer busses are powered.

15

When does the generator DRIVE disconnect light happen?

drive has been disconnected through use of the Generator drive DISCONNECT switch
IDG failure
engine shutdown
IDG automatic disconnect due to high oil temp

16

Can and IDG be reconnected in the air?

no

17

What are the conditions for the disconnect switch to work?

power is available
engine start lever in IDLE

18

If STANDBY POWER switch is in AUTO, how are busses transfered if all AC power lost?

AC stby bus powered by battery through static inverter
DC standby bus powered by battery
battery bus powered by battery

19

If you move the STANDBY POWER switch to off, what happens?

STANDBY POWER OFF light illuminates
AC standby bus, static inverter, and DC standby bus are not powered.

20

If you move the STANDBY POWER switch to BAT, what happens?

when conducting an ILS approach.

23

What does TRANSFER BUS OFF light mean?

associated bus is not powered.

24

What does SOURCE OFF show?

no source has been manually selected to power the associated transfer bus.
manually selected source has been disconnected.

25

What does the ground service switch do?

allows the airplane to be serviced using external power by manually activating the ground service busses without energizing the AC transfer busses.

26
