Abstract

THE CONSTANT SPEED DRIVES supplied by Sundstrand which convert the variable speed of a jet engine into a constant speed to drive a 400Hz constant frequency electric generator to provide power for an aircraft's electrical system were first introduced in 1945 and allowed aircraft to use a lighter weight, more economical, and more reliable ac generating system.
