🔥Integrated Drive Generator 🔥
✔️📘✏️The integrated drive generator (IDG) consists of a Constant Speed Drive (CSD) and AC generator mounted side by side in a single housing.
✔️📘✏️The IDG provided electrical power for All the aircraft systems.
✔️📘✏️CSD coverts variable input of the engine into a fixed rotational speed for generator. So, the Generator can provide a fixed frequency to the Aircraft Electrical network.
✔️📘✏️IDG is driven by the engine Accessory Gearbox.It is Accessible in the Engine Nacelle.
✔️📘✏️Oil is used for cooling and lubrication the IDG therefore it is necessary to check the oil level by the sight glass.
✔️📘✏️The reliability and the efficiency of the IDG is depended on the cleanness and correct Quantity of the OIL Used
✔️📘✏️It usually produces a out of constant AC frequency usually 3 phase,115 VAC at 400 Hz.
✔️📘✏️On aircraft such as the Airbus A310, Airbus A320 family, Airbus A320neo, Airbus A330, Airbus A330neo, Airbus A340, Boeing 737NG, 747, 757 767 and 777, an integrated drive generator (IDG) is used
