All About Airplanes: Engine APU ( Auxiliary Power Unit )

The Small Engine and Accessories Test Area (SEATA) facilitates test aircraft starting and auxiliary power systems, small engines and accessories. The SEATA consists of six test rooms which contain mounting provisions for at least two concurrent test setups and a supply of high-pressure/high-temperature compressed air, hydraulic and electrical power and cooling water for heat and power absorption. Each room has its own dedicated control room which supports remote operation, control devices…

Fuel saving semi trucks - Every Red Gold semi-truck is now equipped with an Auxiliary Power Unit, which is designed to reduce the amount of idle time fuel by 70%. This simple change is responsible for saving 168,000 gallons of fuel every single year. We then added a fuel management system, saving another 15,000 gallons yearly. Just because they’re big (and pretty) doesn’t mean they are wasteful.

SPACE SHUTTLE AUXILIARY POWER UNITS - This problem focuses on the MMACS flight controller. Students learn about one of his/her duties in monitoring the Auxiliary Power Units of the space shuttle. Students will apply various calculus concepts including an application of related rates. The focus is on interpretation of the derivative as a rate of change.
