Q 7. If the APU is running and the Battery Switch is selected OFF, which of the following occurs?

A. The APU shuts down immediately, eliminating the 60 second cooldown cycle.
B. The APU continues to run normally.
C. The APU completes the 60 second cooldown cycle then shuts down.
D. The APU continues to run, but both APU generators shed their electrical load.

Q 8. When using the APU as the bleed air source, how many air conditioning packs may be operated during engine start?

A. Three packs
B. Two packs
C. All packs may be off or one pack may be on for engine start.

Q 9. When does the EICAS advisory message APU display?

A. It displays when the APU Selector is OFF, and an APU fault shutdown has occurred.
B. It displays when the APU cannot be restarted until maintenance action is performed.
C. It displays when the QRH procedure requires that the APU should be shut down using the APU Fire Switch if the APU Selector is ON.
D. It displays when the APU Selector is ON, and an APU fault shutdown has occurred or when a QRH procedure may require using the APU Fire Switch to shut down the APU.

Q 10. Which statement is true regarding the APU?

A. Only one APU generator may be used during main engine start
B. The APU should not be used as source of bleed air and electrical power simultaneously
C. The APU provides sufficient output to supply electrical power for all normal loads plus sufficient bleed air to operate one air conditioning pack during engine start.

Q 11. The APU is available as a source of electrical power both inflight and on the ground.

C. The momentary action switches are pushed on.

Q 17. The VALVE light on the bottom half of the APU Bleed Isolation Valve switch is illuminated. What does this indicate?

A. The valve is open
B. The valve is closed
C. The valve position disagrees with the commanded position.

Q 18. What EICAS memo message is displayed when APU N1 rpm is greater than 95% and the APU Selector is ON?

A. APU RUNNING
B. APU
C. APU COOLDOWN
D. There is no Memo message.

Q 19. When is the EICAS advisory message APU FUEL displayed?

A. Fuel pressure is low or fuel valve is closed
B. Fuel pressure is low. The APU fuel pump is commanded ON and the fuel valve position disagrees with the commanded position
C. Fuel quantity in main tank 2 is below 2,000 lbs.(900 Kgs)
