Aircraft Electric System Development and Test Facilities 811089

Unique and specialized in-house test facilities were required when Sundstrand Corporation added a new product line consisting of 400 Hz aircraft generators and associated controls.
This paper will describe the evolution of the requirements, the capabilities and the functions of the test facilities that have been established.
