COOLDOWN STATE
At stop command MASTER SW OFF, the pneumatic load is removed,
i.e. the IGVs are closed, the bleed control valve positioned to discharge,
the AC generator may still be loaded, then the engine goes into a 120 s
cool down cycles. This function runs the APU at a low stabilized
temperature before normal shutdown.

NORMAL SHUTDOWN
An APU normal shutdown is initiated when the MASTER SW P/B is
released out. If the APU bleed air is not selected, the APU shuts down
immediately. The normal shutdown signal stops the fuel supply. This
causes the APU to decelerate. The AVAIL indication goes off and the
AC generator de-energizes. When the speed is less than 90% rpm, the
gearbox de-oil solenoid valve opens. When the speed is less than 7%
rpm, the air intake flap is controlled to fully close.

- loss of DC power,
- ECB failure,
- generator HOT
- loss of speed sensing,
- IGV shutdown,
- oil filter clogged.

EMERGENCY SHUTDOWN
The ECB initiates an emergency shutdown when either the APU FIRE
P/B, which is located in the cockpit, is released out, or when the APU
SHUT OFF pushbutton, which is located on the external power receptacle
panel, is pressed. The ECB receives automatically an emergency shutdown
signal when an APU FIRE is detected on ground by the APU Fire
Detection Unit. The APU shuts down immediately without time delay,
even if the APU bleed air system is used.

U3T06191 - U13T1M0 - UM49D7000000003

PROTECTIVE SHUTDOWN
When the ECB is powered, it controls the APU starting and running
phases. If an abnormal parameter is detected, it initiates an immediate
shutdown without time delay, even if the APU bleed air system is used.
The ECB protective shutdown parameters are:
- over speed,
- over temperature
- Low Oil Pressure (LOP),
- High Oil Temperature (HOT),
- start period timer,
- sensor failure,
- air intake flap,
- no flame,
- reverse flow,
