Moreover, the compressor (4) and/or the hydraulic pump are also connected to the power module (1) via the gearbox (5 a) and the main clutch (10). Also, the compressor (4) and/or hydraulic pump are connected to the power module (1) via the gearbox (5 a) and the main clutch (10). This architecture permits the functioning modes of the APU to be extended, increasing its performance and reducing harmful environmental effects. Application File Date: 2009-01-08 Application Granted Date: 2012-02-21 Current Assignee: Airbus Operations SL Patent Number: CA2703166A1 Passive cooling system for auxiliary power unit installation Abstract An auxiliary power unit (APU) assembly housed within a compartment of an aircraft including a compressor portion, a gas exhaust end, and an exhaust eductor in communication with the exhaust end of the APU. The eductor includes a nozzle disposed downstream of and in fluid communication with the APU exhaust end for receiving a gas exhaust flow from the APU in use. A mixing member in fluid communication with the nozzle and a source of secondary air is adapted to introduce secondary air into the gas exhaust flow. A bleed nozzle is in fluid communication with the APU compressor portion and the nozzle, and is adapted to introduce pressurized air from the compressor portion into the exhaust flow. The bleed nozzle introduces pressurized air into the nozzle at a position upstream of where the mixing member introduces secondary air into the nozzle. Application File Date: 2002-10-18 Application Granted Date: 2013-01-15 Current Assignee: Pratt and Whitney Canada Corp Patent Number: US20120258839A1 Auxiliary power unit having a continuously variable transmission Abstract Inventive embodiments are directed to components, subassemblies, systems, and/or methods for auxiliary power units (APU). In one embodiment, the APU includes a source of rotational power such as a combustion engine operably coupled to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The CVT can be coupled to a load. In some embodiments, the load is provided by a generator. In one embodiment, the APU has a control system configured to control the operation of the engine and the operation of the CVT.
