The Guinault GPUs provide power to the aircraft in accordance with aircraft manufacturers' recommendations and standards in force. They deliver an alternating voltage of 200V/400Hz, and 28Vdc continuously. Optional modules for generating alternative voltages are available (for example 56 Vcc). The Guinault range covers requirements from 0 to 200 kVA.
Specially designed at conception for military use, the GUINAULT GA45, GB45/20 and GC20 Ground Power Units are the perfect solution for
providing 400 Hz or 28 Vdc electrical power for regional aircraft.
Their compactness is unrivalled in the market (being only 1.1 m high), which significantly reduces the risk of accidents on the tarmac.
The strong performance of the dual voltage GUINAULT alternator makes it possible to use an oil cooled DEUTZ COMPACT engine, without water cooling. Maintenance and
fuel consumption are reduced. The 9-phase GUINAULT alternator provides a high quality direct current (18 pulses).
A Low-Cost market-leading airline (being highly cost sensitive) selected the GUINAULT compact generator based on a comparative analysis of existing products available
on the market.
The choice of the GUINAULT product was made, based upon the following criteria:
• Low maintenance cost
• The lowest fuel consumption
• Ease of manoeuvre of the GPUs (1200 kg / 2060 x 1430 x 1 120 mm)
