Abstract:

The development and test of a complete airborne electrical generation and distribution system for operation in a 600 F ambient temperature-80,000 feet environment are outlined. This system consists of a 40 KVA constant-speed drive and a-c generator including frequency controls, automatic paralleling, regulator, and protective panel current transformer contactor 50 ampere transformer-rectifier wire terminals fuses circuit breakers and motors. These components were tested individually and connected as a generating system. The system was subjected to compatibility and performance evaluation tests throughout the temperature range for which they were designed. A physical and functional description of these components, including photographs, drawings, and schematics is presented. A detailed discussion of the integrated system test covering the test installation, test parameters and test results is also presented. Results of these tests demonstrate operation of the system up to 600 F and indicate performance comparable to current state-of-the-art. Author
