Our alternate generation systems

Safran Electrical & Power provides alternate generation equipment and systems such as APU generators and Ram Air Turbine.


The emergency generation system, or RAT (Ram Air Turbine), is used to provide electrical power and/or hydraulic pressure to the critical systems on the aircraft in case of a failure of the main generation systems. Stowed in either the nose, flap fairing, or belly of the fuselage, it deploys when power is lost, and generates electricity and/or hydraulic pressure by utilizing the air flowing around the aircraft. The RAT can either be automatically or manually deployed to provide power to the Flight Control System, Avionics and Computers.
