The Aircraft Engineering Principles and Practice Series provides students, apprentices and practicing aerospace professionals with the definitive resources to take forward their aircraft engineering maintenance studies and career. New and updated electrical equipment based on the latest sensors, processors and displays are introduced on a regular basis to modernize passenger aircraft. Engineers need access to up to date and affordable reference material. This book is a detailed introduction to the principles of aircraft electrical and electronic systems. It well suited for anyone pursuing a career in aircraft maintenance engineering or a related aerospace engineering discipline, and in particular will be suitable for those studying for licensed aircraft maintenance engineer status. All the necessary mathematical, electrical and electronic principles are examined clearly and in-depth. The contents of this book have been mapped across from the electrical contents of EASA part 66 (modules 11 and 13), together with the avionic units from BTEC Nationals and CG2661. * Delivers the essential principles and knowledge required by Airframe and Propulsion (A&P) Mechanics for Modules 11 and 13 of the EASA Part-66 syllabus and BTEC National awards in aerospace engineering * Comprehensive and accessible, with self-test questions, exercises and multiple choice questions to enhance learning for both independent and tutor-assisted study * Accompanied by an online image bank
