As technology and aircraft continue to advance, analog modems and mechanical components are rapidly being replaced with state of the art electronic hardware. As an increasing number of aircraft parts now rely on electricity, having an efficient and operational electric powering system is a critical need. While these systems can be fairly complex, being aware of some of the basic components can go a long way in understanding the functionality and operations of various systems. In this blog, we will discuss some of the base electrical system components within an aircraft, including switches, solenoids, relays, fuses, and circuit breakers.

At one point or another, you may have confused a capacitor for a battery. They are similar in size, shape, and function; however, the applications in which they are used distinguish them from one another. A capacitor is an electronic device that is capable of storing energy in the form of an electric charge. The amount of energy it can store is 10,000 times smaller than that of a battery, but it still contributes to the overall success of circuit designs. Let’s take an in depth look at how capacitors are created, as well as how they function.
