The AC generator is a dual-function technology that converts a part of the engines' or APU's mechanical energy into electrical energy. From a few kVA up to 150kVA, Safran Electrical & Power has developed a wide range of generators for civil and military applications.
DC generators & starter generators are a dual-function technology that convert a part of the engines' or APU's mechanical energy into electrical energy. They produce an unidirectional flow of electric charge. Generally air-cooled, Safran Electrical & Power generators can be brushed or brushless.
A fuel cell is an onboard electrical power generation system that is both autonomous and silent. It is composed of a fuel cell, a gaseous hydrogen tank, a compressor, an electric converter and a computer.
The emergency generation system, or RAT (Ram Air Turbine), is used to provide electrical power and/or hydraulic pressure to the critical systems on the aircraft in case of a failure of the main generation systems.
