400 Hz Super Flight Line Electrical Distribution Systems
Unitron 400 Hz Super Flight Line Electrical Distribution Systems (SFLEDS) reduce emissions created by diesel engine-driven support equipment (SE) by replacing the existing engine-driven power supplies with host facility power and redistributing the conditioned power along the flight line. SFLEDS converts and conditions 480V, 60 Hz, 3 phase host facility grid power to 120V, 60Hz, single phase output for low voltage equipment and 115V, 400 Hz, 3 phase for aircraft while still allowing outputs of 480V, 60 Hz, 3 phase for heady duty equipment. Implementation of this system requires the routing of 480V, 60 Hz power cable from the host facility grid to the SFLEDS site. SFLEDS configuration includes frequency converters, transformers, and electrical controls.
