Which part of the aircraft does Pack 1 normally supply?
How is the Temperature Control Valve regulated from the cockpit?
By positioning the Cockpit or Cabin rotary selector to desired position on the Air Conditioning Panel. The requested temperature can be read on the ECS synoptic page.
How is the manual temperature control mode regulated from the cockpit?
By means of the manual toggle switches on the Air Conditioning Panel
What does the pilot control in the air conditioning unit while in the manual mode of the operation?
He directly actuates the Temperature Control Valve.
What is the function and location of the Ram Air Intake Scoop for the air conditioning unit?
It is located at the base of the vertical fin and is used as the cooling medium for the air-to air heat exchangers.
Where is the ram air exhausted after passing through the primary and secondary heat exchangers of packs 1 and 2?
Exhausts vents on the left and right sides of the aft fuselage
How is cooling airflow maintained through the packs during ground operations with no ram air flow available?
A fan, mechanically driven by the air cycle machine, is installed in the ram air duct to increase the airflow through the duct for cooling of the heat exchangers.
What is the function of the ram air valve located in the air conditioning system?
If both air conditioning systems fail, it can be opened causing ram air to ventilate both the cockpit and the cabin.
