Title: CWS excessing switching speed
Post by: NLS le pingouin on April 07, 2010, 06:27:22 AM
Hi everybody!
I can read on the Apollo Operation Handbook vol 2 :
Quote
(While C/W PWR is on 1.)
C/W PWR - 2 [pause at OFF (ctr) at least 1 sec]  |   Excessif switching speed will cause temporary loss of both power supplies, and alarm reset capability.

I will try to add this feature to the C/W System code. Something like that :
If your sitching speed is more than 1 sec, you will have something like a chance under five that this loss of power and alarm reseting appened.
Do you think that is a good idea?

If you can make it work, go ahead :). You might want to investigate why it would fail and see if we can simulate the mechanism.
