ELECTRICAL POWER -- FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN FUTURE CIVIL AIRCRAFT OF MODERATE COMPLEXITY

This paper deals with the electrical power generation and associated distribution system chosen for a feeder liner of moderate size and complexity designed for inservice introduction in the early 1980s as exemplified by the HS. 146 project. The HS. 146 is a four-engine high wing aircraft designed to carry approximately 70 passengers economically over stage lengths of typically 150 nautical miles, operating from airfields with runways of some 1000/1200 meters (3500/4000 feet). Factors considered include system rating, certification aspects, the design of the busbar distribution network, and the power system characteristic.
