An advancement in electrical power generation has been developed which improves the quality of power for airborne and ground-based electrical components. The improved power will allow electrical components to be designed smaller and lighter in weight. The accuracy of positioning devices and radar equipment is improved as a result of a more closely regulated frequency. The reliability and maintainability of the power equipment is higher than the equipment in use today because fewer moving parts are involved in converting the variable engine speed to a constant frequency electrical power. The equipment will require less maintenance, thus reducing downtime and the cost of ownership. The VSCF system has many advantages which put it into a classification of an advanced electrical system.
