Starter Generator – DC 23080 Series V



The 23080 Series V DC Starter Generators include but may not be limited to part numbers: 23080-031 and 23080-032. They are manufactured or cataloged by Safran Power (TRW Lucas Goodrich) and operate as a motor to provide torque for engine starting and as a generator to provide DC electrical power after engine starting is accomplished. When used as an engine starter, the starter-generator can be energized either by batteries or by ground-power units. The Output Rating is 12kW. The rating for continuous load within speed range is 350 Amps, 30 volts at 7470 to 12000 RPM, self cooled to inlet temperature of 122°F (50°C) max. 400 Amps, 30 volts at 7470 to 12000 RPM, blast cooled. The external starting power supply limitations are self-limiting current load of 2,000 Amps max. @ 28 VDC. Generally, these Starter Generators are used on turboprop and light jet aircraft serving the commercial and military. During on-ground operation, a fan attached to the anti-drive end of the drive shaft supplies forced-air cooling. In flight, the starter-generator, in addition to the fan, is blast-cooled through the air inlet and the aircraft’s air duct system.
