Ground Power Units For Aircraft
Statcon Energiaa offers state-of-the-art GPU units for wide range of applications for Aircraft starting and its maintenance. The GPU offers accurate and reliable operation.
It is designed with the company’s experience in indigenous development of Power Electronic Equipments. The GPU is available in “Tractor towable” and “Battery operated Vehicle” models.
The Technology of this GPU has been tested on wide range of Defence Aircrafts like SU-30-MKI,JAGUAR, MIRAGE, MIG-29, MIG-23, IL-76 I 78, MIG-BIS (MIG-21), AN-32 and wide range of Helicopters like MI-26, MI-25/35, MI-7/8, MI-17, DHRUV.
The GPU uses a high-speed engine and directly coupled, 400Hz brushless alternator to generate the power required. In addition to that, specially designed Transformers Rectifiers are used so as to deliver both continuous and cranking load demands.
GPU using 50Hz Alternator with SFC is also available. An Electronic AVR connected to the field of the alternator helps in keeping the output voltage regulation within specified limits and at the same time meets the peak load demands of an Aircraft starting.
Micro-Controller based circuit continuously monitors and provides protection to both Aircraft and GPU against any unprecedented or fault conditions in the output power. This software helps in accurate & precise value measurements for post-analysis. Each GPU is provided with two sets of cables (both AC & DC wherever applicable) with suitable connectors for connecting GPU output to the Aircraft.
The whole equipment is designed to with-stand rigorous temperature variations and can work at very high altitudes of up to 2500 meter above MSL.
