Economic and technological aspects of airport stationary 400 HZ power generating facilities for ground services are reviewed and composed to reliance on traditional mobile ground power units (GPU). The development of fixed HZ airport power facilities is the wash of the aerospace industry, whose ground terminal requirements (small short-length calling) contrast with those of high-power long-haul electric power transmission. New designs of generators, distribution networks, and line drop compensators are discussed. Reactance effects, of minor importance in 50/60 HZ distribution systems, loom large in the 400 HZ system, aircraft connections, power supply to airport passenger bridges, and power cost per loading gate are discussed.
