Electrical and Electronic Equipment Cooling in Commercial Transports
|Publication Date:||1 September 1992|
This document considers the cooling of equipment installed in
equipment centers, which usually consist of rack-mounted equipment
and panel mounted equipment in the flight deck. In instances where
these two locations result in different requirements, these are
identified. For purposes of this document, the cooled equipment is
referred to generally as E/E equipment, denoting that both
electrical and electronic equipment is considered, or as an E/E
Specification requirements, system design considerations, component design, and system testing are described. Also described are the analysis and test considerations for the thermal design of the avionic equipment. The discussion of supplementary cooling systems includes consideration of a refrigeration system.
The purpose of this document is to provide information and guidelines for the analysis, design, installation, and testing of systems providing cooling for E/E equipment on commercial transport aircraft.
