Episode 55 "Overvoltage Protection for Permanent Magnet Alternators"

April 2019

Most Sonex pilots are flying engines that utilize permanent magnet alternators, such as the AeroVee and Jabiru. These systems are simple and effective, but can benefit from a carefully constructed electrical system that incorporates active voltage protection. Our guest Bob Nuckolls helps us dig into overvoltage protection (and much more!) to explain some simple practices we can use in our planes.

Guest: Bob Nuckolls, author of the AeroElectric Connection book and website. Bob brings more than 40 years of experience designing and integrating aircraft electrical systems for all types of general aviation aircraft.
