Allows the backup battery to be charged.
Why do Avionics Masters 1 and 2 need to be OFF during APU start with battery power only?
To protect transient sensitive equipment (avionics)
Will Shed bus OVRD work in the air?
No, EDL logic is different on the ground vs. air.
What does the Essential Power Button do?
Ensures the Electrical Emergency configuration
What instruments will you have during an electrical emergency?
- Both RMU's

What is an Electrical Essential Transfer Fail?
When you may have had an electrical emergency and the system failed to configure.
Will not notice any change other than EICAS messages.
Batteries will be powering all DC buses (about 12 minutes of power)
Will need to press the Essential Power button to save battery power.
What is an Electrical Emergency Abnormal?
- When the system has configured for an electrical emergency, but one has not occurred
- Batteries powering the essentials (will last about 40 mins)
- When batteries die, you will lose what you would normally have during an electrical emergency (EICAS, both RMU's, electrical standby instruments)
How to remember # of networks during different electrical configurations?
- From 4 to 3, lose diversity (less than 4 gens, down to one network)
- From 3 to 2, lose the sheds

What does Tank 1 (2) Pump Power do?
Energizes the selected pump.
What does moving the X-Feed selector knob to Low 1 (2) do?
Opens the cross feed valve and de-energizes the pump on the selected side.
What electric motor-driven fuel pumps are non-essential?
- The C pumps - would lose in an electrical emergency
- Recognized by clicking behind seats on relay boxes when the other pumps cycle on/off
Max altitude that the FPMU can supply fuel without assistance from an electrical pump?
When to press the BAGG EXTG button?
- Baggage smoke warning on EICAS (not light on button)
- Do not discharge on ground while door is open - the bottles are designed to work with a sealed compartment (starve Oxygen and can harm people/rampers)
Baggage fire extinguishes located?

What happens when APU Master Knob is selected to ON?
- Opens fuel SOV
- Enables EICAS Messages
- Energizes the FADEC
APU Master to OFF?
- De-energizes the FADEC
- Inhibits EICAS Messages
- Closes Fuel SOV
