The Standard Wiring System for Aircraft

The Standard Wiring System for Aircraft THE use of electricity on aircraft commenced with the essential need of an electric spark to ignite the fuel charge in engine cylinders just as in the case of other mechanically propelled vehicles. Where a coil was used and not a magneto, or a number of navigation or other lights were required, it was necessary to provide a secondary storage battery for the purpose of supplying current for a limited duration. Fortunately for the power supply of those days, the duration was often curtailed by some other factor such as engine failure or low fuel load, if nothing worse happened to reduce the flying time. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE use of electricity on aircraft commenced with the essential need of an electric spark to ignite the fuel charge in engine cylinders just as in the case of other mechanically propelled vehicles. Where a coil was used and not a magneto, or a number of navigation or other lights were required, it was necessary to provide a secondary storage battery for the purpose of supplying current for a limited duration. Fortunately for the power supply of those days, the duration was often curtailed by some other factor such as engine failure or low fuel load, if nothing worse happened to reduce the flying time.
