Safran Power Units Auxiliary Power Units are compatible with all hosts, whatever the application: civil or military, air, land or sea.
Safran Power Units' different turbine families deliver up to 500 shp (shaft horse power) of electric, pneumatic or mechanical energy to match the specific needs of your programs.
Safran Power Units has specifically designed the e-APU to meet the highest requirements of «more-electric» and «all-electric» new-generation aircraft, helicopters and UAVs.
The technologies and architecture retained for this new APU significantly optimize its performance and efficiency. Covering a wide range of power ratings, from 20 to 120 kVA, the e-APU family offers significant benefits, in particular the best power-to-weight ratio and dimensions in its category, reduced fuel consumption and improved endurance and reliability, which also mean a very competitive cost of ownership.
With its versatile gearbox, the e-APU can be adapted to different power configurations and electrical systems.
The gearbox can accommodate a wide range of DC or AC starter generators, particularly 28, 115 and 270 VAC units.
Through customized design, the e-APU gearbox is capable of simultaneously driving any starter generator and alternator combination.
The e-APU has impressively low pollution and noise emission levels, which are below current requirements and anticipate future standards.
EASA / FAA civil certification 1st semester 2013: TSO-C77b/CS-APU category 1 for essential use.
