CURRENT
AIR6540C
The scope of this report is to capture fundamental principles of selecting a wire size for an aerospace application using the method prescribed in AS50881 and additional calculations, not found in AS50881, to ensure the wire selection will adequately perform in the specific physical and environmental conditions. This report covers wire selection and sizing as part of the electrical wire interconnection systems (EWIS) used in aerospace vehicles. Aerospace vehicles include manned and unmanned airplanes, helicopters, lighter-than-air vehicles, missiles, and external pods. This document does not apply to wiring inside of airborne electronic equipment but shall apply to wiring externally attached to such equipment.

AIR8445
EPS stability is an essential property that defines EPS ability to provide secure operation under required range of operation scenario. Power system stability is defined as “the ability of an electric power system, for a given initial operating condition, to regain a state of operating equilibrium after being subjected to a physical disturbance, with most system variables bounded so that practically the entire system remains intact”. This is applicable for AC and DC systems and has to address steady state conditions, transient conditions as well as high power loads connection / disconnection on the network.

CURRENT
AIR6139
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) considers the issue of power regeneration into the EPS of an aircraft. A series of options for dealing with this regenerative power are considered and arranged in categories. Advantages and disadvantages of each solution, including the existing solution, are included. Validated simulation results from representative Electrical Power systems are presented in order to demonstrate how some of the solutions may operate in practice and how power quality can be maintained during regeneration. The impact on changes to the electrical generation system are also highlighted in this AIR, as these changes may have an impact on the solution deployed and the wider impact on the design of engines and auxiliaries. This AIR reviews concepts and excludes detailed discussions on power system design. These concepts relate to the More Electric Aircraft, cover both AC and DC systems and can be applied to both normal operating conditions or as fault mitigation.
