LARGE-AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS
LARGE-AIRCRAFT ELECTRICAL SYSTEMSLarge-aircraft electrical systems have many similarities to those systems found on small aircraft. On large aircraft there is typically one or two batteries and two or more ac generators (alternators), which supply power to several distribution buses. The ac generators are connected to the ac buses. The dc battery is connected directly to the battery or emergency bus. The ac power produced by the generators is converted to direct current where needed for special applications. Essential lighting, flight control systems, and communication and navigation radios are high-priority electrical systems. Galley power, nonessential lighting, and various other comfort systems are considered low-priority electrical systems. These nonessential systems are usually …
