APU start on batteries

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

just a quick question, is it possible in the MD to start the APU without additional GPU. I mean, Batterie master on, proper fuel pumps setting and APU master start. I tried it several times, APU starts, EGT and N rotation starting and than a shut down of the APU after prox 20 percent N rotation.

Maybe in the real plane not possible, but specially on isolated airfields it should be working. May I do someting wrong?

greetings

Peter

You must turn on the Start pump situated on the left side of the overhead panel somewhere below the Galley power switch.

This is due to the main fuel pumps are on the AC BUS.  The START PUMP is a DC motor that can be used off the battery.
