QUIZ BANK B 737-400 CHAPTER 6: ELECTRICAL

1. When battery is only power source, BAT switch OFF removes power from:
(A) Battery Bus
(B) Switch Hot Battery Bus
(C) AC & DC Stand by buses
(D) Static Inverter
(E) All of the above

BAT OFF : removes power from battery bus, switched hot battery bus, DC standby
bus, static inverter, and AC standby bus when battery is only power source.

2. Higher than normal temperature rise indicates excessive generator load or


poor condition of the generator drive.
(A) True (B) False

Higher than normal temperature rise indicates excessive generator load or poor
condition of the generator drive

3. BUS TRANS switch OFF isolates transfer buses by preventing:


(A) Operation of bus transfer relays
(B) Opens TR3 disconnect relay
(C) Prevents the battery charger from switching to its alternate source, main
bus 1
(D) A & B is correct
(E) B & C is correct
