    How GPU works in Aircrafts

    Written by Start Pac Generally, most starter motors and generators operate on turbine engines that work alongwith 30 volts without causing any damage. The highest amount of amperage draw is felt at the moment when the starter is activated. The amperage figure could climb up to 1000 amps on certain gas turbine start up engines. As the startup continues, requirements in terms of amperage drop down throughout the activation cycle. A battery would need to be in good state by this time in order to minimize a voltage drop as a considerable load is applied during the start up. Usually as a load is applied to a battery, the voltage…

    How to Use a Ground Power Unit to Jumpstart an Aircraft

    Written by: Start Pac The process of jumpstarting an aircraft is nothing like jumping a car battery. It’s true there is a battery involved, but everything about the process is different. From the kinds of connections you need, to the requirements for voltage, great care must be taken to ensure the power is transferred properly to the plane. These tips will help you to use ground power to jump an aircraft if you’re ever in the need. Fixed Ground Power There are basically two types of ground power unit. The first is a portable one that can be carried out into the tarmac. It’s usually on a trailer of some…
