METHODS OF PRODUCING VOLTAGE
METHODS OF PRODUCING VOLTAGEAs discussed earlier, voltage is the force, or pressure, that creates electron movement. Voltage must be present in all circuits in order to produce current flow, but what creates voltage? Voltage is created by limited means, and only two methods produce nearly 100 percent of all electric power consumed by typical aircraft.Friction is a method of producing voltage by simply rubbing two dissimilar materials together. This usually produces static electricity, which is not typically a useful form of power. In fact, most static electricity found on the aircraft becomes a nuisance to both communication and navigation systems as well as advanced electronic devices.
