Entering a dark cockpit, what action is necessary before checking the battery voltages?

Correct! Wrong!

What does the BUS TIE Pushbutton do when Selected OFF?

Correct! Wrong!

The IDG shall be disconnected only when the engine is running or windmilling. If not, the IDG will be damaged when starting the engine.

Correct! Wrong!

Maintaining the IDG pb-sw during more than 3 seconds may also damage the IDG disconnection mechanism.

Which of the following AC busses can be powered by the emergency generator?

Correct! Wrong!

In the event that normal AC power is not available, an emergency generator can provide AC power. In the event that all AC power is not available, the electrical power system can invert DC power from the batteries into AC power.

Correct! Wrong!

The aircraft batteries are always connected to the DC BAT BUS.

Correct! Wrong!

The two batteries are connected to the DC BAT BUS, if they need charging. When they are fully charged, the battery charge limiter disconnects them.

In cruise, you have suddenly a Master Warning and caution comes on with ELEC EMER CONFIG. You notice a red FAULT light on the RAT and EMER GEN pushbutton. What does it indicate?

Correct! Wrong!

The RAT powers the blue hydraulic system, which drives the emergency generator by the means of an electric motor.

Correct! Wrong!

The RAT powers the blue hydraulic system, which drives the emergency generator by the means of a hydraulic motor. This generator supplies the AC ESS BUS, and the DC ESS BUS via the ESS TR.

Which voltage requires recharging or replacing the batteries?

Correct! Wrong!

When no other power is available in flight, the static inverter converts _____ power to AC power for the _____ bus and _____ powers the _____ bus.

Correct! Wrong!

The purpose of the AUTO BUS TIE is to allow either engine-driven IDG to automatically power both main AC buses in the event of a generator loss until either ground power or the APU generator is activated.

Correct! Wrong!

The normal priority for supplying electrical power to the AC busses is:

Correct! Wrong!

GEN 1 and 2 when operating have priority over the APU generator and over external power. External power has priority over the APU generator when the EXT PWR pb switch is ON.

Normal minimum battery voltage before APU start is:

Correct! Wrong!

The number 1 AC bus channel normally supplies power to _____ and to the _____ bus which supplies power to the ______ bus.

Correct! Wrong!
