A ground power unit capable of no-break power transfer includes a rectifier for converting power from commercial mains to direct current, a switching circuit, a power transformer, and a pattern generator for controlling the operation of the switching circuit. Voltage and current sensors monitor whether the phase of the ground power unit is leading or lagging the phase of the aircraft power bus at the tinge of power transfer. The frequency and phase of the pattern generator converter is adjusted to bring the two systems into alignment quickly, well before...
An external power supply for use in a no-break power transfer connection to an active aircraft power bus provided with power from an internal aircraft power source, and a power transfer switch for switching between the aircraft power source and the external power supply, comprising a direct current source of power, a transformer having at least one primary winding and at least one secondary winding, a switching circuit connected between the primary winding of said transformer and said direct current source for providing pulses of direct current to said t...
