An improved method and system for facilitating no-break power transfer between an APU and a main engine includes determining a required APU speed for conducting power transfer based on various APU operating parameters, such as engine speed, fuel, environmental temperature, etc. The APU controller then adjusts the APU speed up or down to the required APU speed. Communication between an aircraft computer and the APU controller may also be provided so that operational data can be exchanged to adjust the electrical load of the aircraft below a maximum load t...
What is claimed is: 1. A method of facilitating power transfer between a main engine and an auxiliary power unit (APU), comprising: obtaining a main engine generator frequency; determining a target APU speed that will generate an APU generator frequency that is the same as the main engine generator frequency; adjusting an actual APU speed to the target APU speed; conducting the power transfer between the main engine and the APU; determining a maximum APU load; and adjusting an aircraft electrical load requirement until the aircraft electrical load falls...
