Voltage Regulation, IC Sense Referenced
This “type B” Voltage Regulator (VR) controls the Generator’s output to keep the aircraft electrical system voltage at the specified 28V by switching power to its field. If the Generator output voltage is less than the VR set point, the switch is closed, current flows to the field and the Generator’s output increases. When the Generator’s output voltage exceeds the VR set point, the switch opens, the field current flow stops, and the Generator’s output decreases. The switching of the field occurs hundreds of times a second in order to keep the output steady.
Reverse Current Protection
The Reverse Current (RC) Protection circuit blocks the battery current from going back to the generator. It allows current to flow only from the generator to the battery and the system.
The Current Limiter (CL) controls the maximum output current the generator can produce. It turns off the field excitation when the output current exceed the CL set point. It allows normal field excitation when the generator output is below the GCU CL set point. Loading the system beyond the CL point will cause the bus voltage to drop.
Over Voltage (OV) Protected
The GCU’s design will cause the field current path (between the field and power input, i.e. terminal C) to open if the system experiences OV condition. The GCU does not protect the system against externally induced OV faults like those caused by a pilot pulling-out and pushing-in the main generator output circuit breaker while the engine is operating at high speed. If the generator’s main output breaker is pulled, the generator (field) switch should be turned off before the main breaker is pushed back in.
Trouble-Shooting Lights on Unit
The on-unit system Trouble-Shooting Lights, TSL, identify how the system is operating and, helps with system testing and troubleshooting. The lights indicate Generator Off/On-line (GO, Green), Voltage Regulation and Field-to-Ground short (VR, Green/Off/Red), Current Limit (CL, Red), and Over-Voltage (OV, Red).
