Question 135: The auxiliary power unit (APU) has its own AC generator that: A supplies the aircraft with three-phase 115-200 V, 400 Hz AC. B is excited by its generator control unit (GCU) as soon as the APU starts up. C must have the same characteristics as the main AC generator so that it can be easily coupled with the latter. D is driven at constant speed through a constant speed drive (CSD), in the same way as the main AC generator.
