Abstract

IN this paper an attempt is mads to give some guidance as to what is needed for a modern aircraft electrical installation. The subject is extremely wide, and the electrical installation designer must have knowledge, not only of the methods of installing cables and equipment, but of the electrical requirements of the aircraft, the means of obtaining the power, and of controlling and distributing the energy to the best possible advantage. He must also know the needs peculiar to airborne conditions, the way to obtain a clear and precise presentation for operation and servicing, the proper source of the varied materials and equipment, and be capable of the design of items which are not otherwise obtainable. He must be able to direct his staff so that instructions are issued in the form of drawings which are as concise and as simple as possible.
