abstract
The use of microprocessors for the implementation of control functions in aircraft electric systems has become a reality. This paper presents a brief survey of these systems along with a typical system block diagram. A description of the diagram highlights the advantages of microprocessor systems over existing noncomputerized control schemes. The second half of the paper discusses the adaptability of more advanced microprocessor systems in the next generation of aircraft electric systems. These powerful new computers will allow digital control and protection of single unit and paralleled generating and starting systems, as well as providing even more effective built-in-test.
