Hi, I am seeking more information about power generator which will be attached to airplane angine to provide power supply for electrical component in the UAV.
where can I find about manufacturers or distributor of these generators? any suggestion about brands and specification?
Hi, you can contact Andrew at millswood engineering as we are currently collaborating with him on a generater system which we use on our UAV. You can find a lind to his web site on ours www.avitus.com.au.
Thank you for your info. what autopilot hardware and software do you use with your UAV ?
I'd say that I'd rank Honda inverter brands. But, check the dimensions of the compartment where you intend to put the gen. set. Look at where fuel and electrical connections will be made. I'd also look at other trailers like yours that have gen-sets. Sometimes one just fit's better than another. Good Luck!
It is the power generator. When the engines are running, like in a car power is generated. When they are turned off, to keep on the lights and avionics in the cockpit they run. Since so much electricity is used a battery is not practical for a long time, just as a backup. Not all planes have APUs. Some smaller or older airliners like the 707 do not have one, so they plug in at the airport for power.
