Alternators can be expected to produce 13-14 volts at anything above idle,
though yours may be a pip-squeak (not saying it is less than adequate for
your need). But battery voltage below 12.2V indicates a discharged battery,
and 11.6 (after being charged) may indicate a worn out battery.



When using a magneto, battery voltage is irrelevant. The mag generates its
own power.

Hi Mike,

You must be running an electronic ignition since magnetos would not require
any amps or volts. I have not yet received a DAR signoff; so, I don't have
a voltage reading during flight. Currently, the volt meter reads between
11.6 and 11.8 volts. Previously, when the alternator was charging, the
voltage read between 12 and 14+ volts, amps - between 2-4 amps at idle to
moderate rpms. Most likely, I believe one of the connections is bad or
wrong. I am using a John Deere, permanent magnet alternator and regulator.
I will post a report when I get it sorted out.

On one occasion during a night flight, I failed to activate the alternator
switch which sends power to the alternator field. The engine was fine
running on magnetos. But, lights got dim, radio transmissions were weak,
nav flags started appearing, etc. So, on that one occasion, I had lost the
alternator and was loosing the battery. Obviously, I survived the
situation.

Since my engine runs on a distributor, the engine will continue to run until
about 6 volts. Also, I am not sure I can operate simultanously the
emergency hand pump, fly the airplane and cope with an electrical failure
adequately. So, a backup emergency battery wired to run the ignition and
help transfer the fuel to the header seems prudent to me.

How many amps does the ignition draw in flight? Mine draws 0 when the
igniton is on but the engine is not running. You could consider the
starting battery is one source of power and the alternator the
second...But you'd want a quick indication of an alternator failure,
which is easy. Alternator working voltage =14, alternator dead,
voltage=12v.

Re: Progress

Isaksson Roger <scratchdeeper@...>
 

Joseph,

If you have a permanent magneto generator, you can't have an alternator field, I
dont know if you just made a mis statement or if there is any data I am missing.

Car alternators have no magnets, they have a coil that is spinning in the
middle, that is charged up by a current, thus creating a magnetic field in that
way. A permanent magneto alternator have simply replaced that coil system with
magnets, and are picking up a magnetic flux field in that way.

That style magnetic alternators, gives typically 10 to 15 Amp, but should hold
battery charging voltage of 13.6V ( some claims 13.8V), an elelctronic ignition
takes between 2 to 4 Amps depending on brand, and an alternator of that size
should easily be able to hold charging voltage. The description of 11.6 or 11.8
Volt means that the battery is not charging. (You might want to check your
Voltage meter as well, with a good MultiMeter, also check the reading at the
generator, as a lower reading at your instrument might be because of resistance
loss in your wiring.)

To me this looks a little bit like you have burned a diod.

All alternators, or permanent magnet generators are producing  AC current, that
are rectified into DC current in a long number of fashions, but diods are
always at the heart of that operation.

The most efficient generators are the three phase type, most cars have that
layout, and I am pretty sure you have that too.

Occasionally a diod is burned out, and your symptoms, from the little you
described seems to fit in pretty well, ( you need to have it checked out by
a person competent in diagnosing a bad diod)  

In a three phase generator, you have three sources sending AC to a diodbridge,
if one is dead, usually you get a drop in Voltage, about as much as you
described, it varies a bit, but you are in the ballpark......and, as you
describe, you still have some voltage, but you don't have an Amp push...meaning
stuff goes flat, you cant keep up lamps, battery levels etc....you just don't
have much oomp in charging the system.

If I would know the wiring of your generator I could give you a better clue, as
to how to go about and diagnose it, but as you are where you are , and I am not
there, I would say, get hold of someone that knows how to tell if you have a bad
diod or not.

With bad charging, all other components starts to act up, but don't rip your
Fuel Injector apart and start tracing components or send your radio to the shop
just yet.


However you turn it, 11.6 or 11.8 Volts says it righ there. 13.6 or 13.8 Volt is
what you need to see, before you take flight.

Good luck
Roger

Did you install the phenolic bracket that clamps the throttle housing to
the

My throttle cable passes through the right side of the mag box, down to a
clamp that secures it to the engine at the oil tank neck. It's about 6-8"
from there to the throttle arm on the carburator. The cable push rod arm
extends directly from that fixed point to the carb. There should be "no

Sounds like you've been making great progress.

Hi Sanjay,
Your doing good taking it slow!
I looked at your airport. Nice with so many runways. One thing I do on takeoff is think about where I'm going if the engine quits. For instance with your airport a takeoff on 9R with a left turn should get you to 27R. It's best to plan where your going ahead of time to avoid that long delay in your brain after it happens! Did you download Sams annual checklist? It is very complete.

only did we have a great "get together" in Beatrice, but we also had a
candid discussion about the direction of the group, the first ever feedback

While all of that was going on, three builders are nearing completion, and
we anxiously await their taxi testing reports. Lets support Sanjay Dhall,
Jerry Brinkerhuff, and Joseph Snow as they get themselves and their planes
ready for first flight.

The extremely observant among you may have noticed a slight change with
this newsletter. My e-mail address has changed to dan@... This
may not sound like much, but what it actually signifies is that the website
is now on it's own hosting account. This will make the site a little more
nimble, and I will be able perform some of the upgrades I have planned for
the next year a little more easily.

Some of the planned changes are based on suggestions from our discussion at
Beatrice. Including linking the the Q-list with the QBA forums, but all that
can wait a bit. For now, sit back, relax, (print it out if you want) and
enjoy this edition of Q-talk.

Then send me an article or other contribution for the next issue! As
always, I look forward to hearing from each and every one of you! Especially
YOU! LOL!

Remember, "Together we build better planes" (and newsletters.)

Warm regards,
Dan Yager

Remote controlled SR-71 Blackbird

This is pretty cool.

*Subject: **Remote controlled SR-71 Blackbird*

This is a most amazing Remote Controlled [RC] model airplane - click
link below to see it fly. Not only did they build its jet engines, but
included retractable landing gear, and built it into a fully scaled
model of the SR-71 that is good enough to fly. This SR-71 model was
built by some remarkably talented German RC enthusiasts! The sheer
sound is incredible!!! I can't imagine how much money they have in it....
