Constant Speed Drive

    • The purpose of the Constant Speed Drive (CSD) is to take rotational power from the engine and, no matter the engine speed, turn the generator at a constant speed
    • This is necessary because the generator output must be 400Hz
    • CSD Operation
      • The engine turns the CSD which uses a differential assembly and hydraulic pumps to turn the generator

    Integrated Drive Generator

    • Another method of regulating the generator speed is with the use of an Integrated Drive Generator (IDG)
    • An IDG is simply a CSD and generator combined into one unit
    • There are two ways to mount the IDG:
      • Co-axially
      • Side-by-side
