REFUEL DEFUEL SYSTEM PRESENTATION (ME) (1)
General
The refuel/defuel system controls the flow of fuel into or out of the aircraft. Two refuel/defuel couplings are installed in the leading edge of each wing providing an interface between the refuel/defuel system and the external fuel source. The refuel/defuel procedures can be initiated and controlled from the overhead panel in the cockpit or from the Integrated Refuel Panel (IRP) in the RH lower belly fairing. The different refuel/defuel system operations are: - automatic refuel from the cockpit, - automatic refuel from the IRP, - manual refuel, - manual pressure defuel, - manual suction defuel, - automatic ground transfer (Center of Gravity control), - manual ground transfer. In all modes of operation overbalance and overflow protection is done by the Fuel Quantity Management System (FQMS).
