Question 68 (in database)

The diagram shows a light aircraft electrical power system, which employs a centre-zero reading
ammeter. Click here to see the diagram.
In flight with the battery fully charged and the battery switch ON, you would expect the ammeter
to be:
a) in the centre-zero


b) to the right showing a large ~.!!t~vJl..ljS~ ing.

c) to the left showing a negative reading.
d) fluctuating, but mainly showing a negative reading . . .
The correct answer is a.
Question 75 (in database)
In the event of an alternator or generator failure during night the:
a) night may be continued normally because the battery supplies all electrical loads .
b) electrical loads should be reduced to a minimum and a landing made as soon as safely
practicable ,
c) alternator master ;

itch turned Q!f and flight continued normally without electrical


d) battery master switch should be turned off andJl!ght continued normally without electrical
The correct answer is b.
