Starter Generator solutions are based on:
In motor mode, the Starter Generator Units are providing controlled torque vs speed characteristic regardless of supply voltage (from 14V to 30V) to drive aircraft engine from 0 rpm to self sustaining speed.
In Generator mode, the Starter Generator Units are regulated converters providing regulated 28 VDC for on-board DC networks from 6000 rpm to 13000rpm, with nominal ratings between 200 and 400 A
Regulated converters are used to create high quality DC networks. They are able to keep network voltage within +/- 1.5 % of rated voltage up to the rated current, and then limiting power on the output, up to the defined overload, and finally managing a short circuit current limitation.
These units present ratings between 200 A and 400 A for 28 VDC networks
These units may be cooled by aircraft forced air or by their own fan.
Used on commercial or military platforms in the following applications:
At Meggitt, we can provide you with a Controlled Starter Generator that is specifically designed and tuned for your application.
