Transcript of Cessna 150 electrical systems

Cessna 150, electrical systems, what they do and what they are
Power systems
holds 25 ampere-hours and a little extra in case of alternator failure
generates power, uses silicon diodes to generate power. It is susceptible to reverse polarity
bus bar
electrical power transport for equipment and installations, receives power from the alternator
electrical regulator/monitor systems
detects the amount of power flowing from or to the battery, and relays it to the pilot
voltage regulator
controls how much power comes out of the alternator, to prevent surges
over voltage system
when to much power is being supplied, turns off alternator and activates a light indicating high voltage
Exterior lights
landing and taxi light
lights used for approaches, landings, and taxing around
anti-collision lights
red light on port side, green on starboard, is to help tell where that plane is moving
Electrical safety systems
Pitot tube heater
heats up the pitot tube on demand, so as to prevent ice build-up on the tube,and causing the plane to not register that it's moving
emergency locator transmitter
when it detects a crash, sends out a pulse to identify where the plane is.
What does the bar do?
Why is there a voltage regulator
What do the silicon diodes do for the alternator?
How does the over-voltage system do when there's too much power?
