What is the purpose of the internal bypass valve?
Allows APU to continue to run if APU pump fails
APU Bleed Air is controlled by modulating
APU LCV(Load Control Valve
APU bleed pressure readout can be monitored on?
EICAS "ECS" synoptic page

46% rpm when on ground
60% RPM when in flight
The battery master is ON and the PWR FUEL switchlight is pressed, what then occurs?
* The ECU is powered
* APU IN BITE
* APU Fuel pump activates
* APU RPM and EGT gauges appear
* Fuel SOV opens
* APU air inlet door opens
Can the APU be used for Anti Ice Bleed Air?
Can the APU bleed air and another source of bleed air be used at the same time?
What valve opens when the APU is providing electrical power above 17,000 ft?
The Surge Control Valve (SCV). The opening of this valve helps to reduce the chance of APU surges when operating in an unloaded bleed air condition
