Flashcards in Powerplant Deck (33):
What is the CRJ-900 Powerplant Model Number?
What is the CRJ700 Powerplant Model Number?
What is the thrust rating without APR/with APR?
13,560 lbs/14,750 lbs
What is the Max ambient air temperature for takeoff and landings?
ISA + 35 degree C
What is the Min AAT for takeoff and landings?
-40 degree C
What is the Max Altitude for a windmill start?
21,000 ft MSL
Max engine to engine N2 split at ground idle power?
How much of the thrust is produced by core air?
How much thrust is produced by by-pass air?
How many stages of compression do we have?
The engine is equipped with a 10 stage axial flow compressor
What accessories are driven off the N2 accessory gear box?
FISH OIL PLUS
The engine driven fuel pump
Air turbine starter
Engine driven hydraulic pump
What is the engine bleed air used for?
Wing and cowl anti-ice
What stages of bleed air are used?
Normally 6th stage
10th stage used when demand exceeds capability of 6th stage
What allows 10th stage bleed air availability?
Air Conditioning System Controller (ACSC) automatically opens the High Pressure Valve (HPV)
How many igniters are installed on each engine?
IGN-A and IGN-B
What are the required parameters before fuel is introduced during a ground engine start?
20% or greater N2
ITT <120 degree C
What is the air pressure requirement provided by the operating engine to initiate a cross-bleed start?
42 psi to a maximum of 80% N2
When will APR arm on takeoff?
Engine speed within 8% of scheduled takeoff power, normal or flex
How can you determine if the APR system has armed?
APR ARMED advisory message
When will the APR system activated?
Thrust levels in TOGA
normal or flex thrust scheduled
N1's differ by 15% or greater or when thrust levers set in the MAX POWER detent
What occurs when the APR system activates?
FADEC commands an N1 speed increase dependent on thrust lever position
What indication will we have of APR activation?
Green APR icon on operable engine N1 gauge
If an engine fails during a go-around, will the APR system activate?
What is used to deploy and stow the thrust reversers?
L reverser uses hydraulic system #1
R reverser uses hydraulic system #2
How are the thrust reversers deployed?
Thrust levers must be at idle
The reverse thrust levers are raised by engaging the thrust reverse release triggers
A solenoid lock stops reverse thrust lever movement while the reversers deploy
Once deployed, the lock releases and N1 may be increased by raising the reverse thrust levers
What is occurring during thrust reverser deployment?
The translating cowls move aft
The bypass air is redirected through cascade vanes which redirect the air forwar
What indications will be seen with normal thrust reverser deployment?
Green REV icon on N1 gauges
What happens when a thrust reverser inadvertently deploys?
FADEC commands reverser to close and thrust set to idle on affected engine
What are the indications of an inadvertent thrust reverser deployment?
Amber REV icon on the N1 gauge
REV UNLOCKED caution message
What is the normal air source for engine starts?
APU or cross-bleed if doing a single engine taxi
What source is used if the APU is INOP?
Ground air cart or bottle attached to the high pressure air ground connection to start one engine.
A cross bleed start is then used to start the other engine after clearing it with ground control
Where is the high pressure air ground connection located?
Under the left engine nacelle
