A ground-based system and method of supplying electrical power and temperature-controlled air to an aircraft environmental control system during ground support operations uses a throttle valve to control the flow of compressed air flowing through a heat exchanger. An air conditioner module mounted on a wheeled cart removes heat from the compressed air that is supplied to it from an auxiliary power unit (APU), and supplies cooled compressed air at a desired temperature. The temperature of the cooled compressed air is controlled by selectively positioning ...
I claim: 1. An aircraft ground cart for supplying electrical power and temperature-controlled air to an aircraft on the ground, the ground cart comprising: an auxiliary power unit (APU) configured to (i) supply a flow of compressed air and (ii) generate electrical power; an air conditioner module coupled to receive the flow of compressed air from the APU and configured, upon receipt thereof, to supply a flow of temperature controlled air; a meteorological sensor configured to sense an ambient meteorological condition of an environment in which the groun...
