A new electro-mechanical constant speed drive (EMCSD) is being developed specifically for business aircraft which require up to 15 KVA of conditioned A-C power. The EMCSD offers weight savings generally associated with hydraulic constant speed drives and prices approaching inexpensive inverter systems.
The relative weights and prices are shown for all three systems (D-C/inverter, EMCSD and hydraulic CSD) to assist the engineer in choosing the proper electrical power source for his aircraft.
