Aircraft Electrical System

The satisfactory performance of any modern aircraft depends to a very great degree on the continuing reliability of electrical Aircraft Electrical System systems and subsystems.

Improperly or carelessly installed or maintained wiring can be a source of both Aircraft Electrical System immediate and potential danger. The continued proper performance of electrical systems depends on the knowledge and technique Aircraft Electrical System of the mechanic who installs, inspects, and maintains the electrical system wires and cables.

Ohm’s Law describes the basic mathematical relationships Aircraft Electrical System of electricity. The law was named after German Physicist George Simon Ohm (1789–1854). Basically, Ohm’s Law states that the current (electron flow) through a conductor is directly proportional to the voltage (electrical pressure) applied to that conductor and inversely proportional to the resistance of the conductor.

The unit used to measure resistance is called the ohm. The symbol for the ohm is the Greek letter omega (Ω). In mathematical formulas, the capital letter R refers to resistance. The resistance of a conductor and Aircraft Electrical System the voltage applied to it determine the number of amperes of current flowing through the conductor. Thus, 1 ohm of resistance limits the current flow to 1 ampere in a conductor
to which a voltage of 1 volt is applied. The primary formula Aircraft Electrical System derived from Ohm’s Law is: E = I × R (E = electromotive force measured in volts, I = current flow measured in amps, Aircraft Electrical System and R = resistance  easured in ohms). This formula can also be written to solve for current or resistance.
