The Aircraft Engineering Principles and Practice Series provides students, apprentices and practicing aerospace professionals with the definitive resources to take forward their aircraft engineering maintenance studies and career. This book provides a detailed introduction to the principles of aircraft electrical and electronic systems. It delivers the essential principles and knowledge required by certifying mechanics, technicians and engineers engaged in engineering maintenance on commercial aircraft and in general aviation. It is well suited for anyone pursuing a career in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related aerospace engineering discipline, and in particular those studying for licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status. The book systematically covers the avionic content of EASA Part-66 modules 11 and 13 syllabus, and is ideal for anyone studying as part of an EASA and FAR-147 approved course in aerospace engineering. All the necessary mathematical, electrical and electronic principles are explained clearly and in-depth, meeting the requirements of EASA Part-66 modules, City and Guilds Aerospace Engineering modules, BTEC National Units, elements of BTEC Higher National Units, and a Foundation Degree in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related discipline.
Introducing the principles of aircraft electrical and electronic systems, this book is written for anyone pursuing a career in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related aerospace engineering discipline, and in particular will be suitable for those studying for licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status. It systematically addresses the relevant sections of modules 11 and 13 of part-66 of the EASA syllabus, and is ideal for anyone studying as part of an EASA and FAR-147 approved course in aerospace engineering. Delivers the essential principles and knowledge base required by Airframe and Propulsion (A&P) Mechanics for Modules 11 and 13 of the EASA Part-66 syllabus and BTEC National awards in aerospace engineering Supports Mechanics, Technicians and Engineers studying for a Part-66 qualification Comprehensive and accessible, with self-test questions, exercises and multiple choice questions to enhance learning for both independent and tutor-assisted study This second edition has been updated to incorporate: complex notation for the analysis of alternating current (AC) circuits; an introduction to the "all electric aircraft" utilising new battery technologies; updated sensor technology using integrated solid-state technology micro-electrical-mechanical sensors (MEMS); an expanded section on helicopter/rotary wing health usage monitoring systems (HUMS).
The material covered includes the details necessary for the Federal Aviation Administration certification of Airframe and Powerplants Technicians. The text expands well beyond this basic information, however, providing as in-depth study of both ac and dc systems for virtually all varieties of aircraft. The text takes students throught the fundamentals of electron theory and on to the study of aircraft digital control systems. Integrated into the text are various examples of troubleshooting techniques as they apply to aircraft systems. The text also provides details on a variety of gernal and commericial aircraft electrical/electronic systems, including avionic systems. One of the major changes in this edition is the moderization of material about electrical and electronic equipment to reflect current practices. Coverage of transistors and semiconductors, lighting systems, and nickel cadmium batteries has been updated while troubleshooting techniques using digital and analog meters have been added.This edition includes a Student Study Guide that parallels the text. It provides fill-in-the-blank questions that identify key term, demonstrates appliations of mathematical relationships, and validates learning progress by offering multiple-choice questions. The Instructor's Manual provides answers to the review questions and transparency masters to help you illustrate key concepts.
