ADIRU Section 1
Air Data Inertial Reference Unit (ADIRU)

The ADIRU is responsible for providing flight data, inertial reference, and air data. It is fault-
tolerant and fully redundant.

Power

Initially the ADIRU requires battery bus power and the ADIRU switch to be on, after switching
on the ADIRU the airplane cannot be moved until full alignment occurs. If the airplane is
moved or the ADIRU is turned off a full realignment cycle must be conducted.

In flight, system logic prevents the ADIRU from becoming unpowered, even if the switch is
inadvertently switched off.

ADIRU Alignment

While the ADIRU is either unaligned or in alignment all attitude and heading/track information
is removed from the PFD’s.

Once electrical power is provided to the aircraft the ADIRU switch is turned on. Airplane
latitude/longitude position must then be entered on the CDU POS INIT page.

You may either enter the airport and gate number that you are currently at or use the GPS
derived position. Press the right LSK next to the co-ordinates you wish to use to enter them
th
in the scratch pad and 5 right LSK to set the inertial position.

Once alignment is complete the airplane can be moved, however if the airplane stops for an
extended period of time the ADIRU automatically realigns itself until the airplane moves
again.

Electrical Panel Section 3


Introduction

The electrical system generates and distributes AC and DC power to various airplane
systems and is comprised of: main AC power, backup power, DC power, standby power, and
flight controls power. The whole system is automatic and any faults are detected and
isolated.

Battery

Turning the battery on while on the ground allows a few switch annunciation lights to
illuminate and also allows the APU to be started. When other sources of AC power are
removed it powers the emergency lighting as well the PFD, ND, MFD, EICAS and CDU.

APU Generator (APU GEN) Switch

The APU is electrically identical to the IDGs (integrated drive generator) located in each
engine and can provide either or both main busses. It can also be used in flight as a
replacement to either IDG source.

When the APU GEN is on the generator is armed to automatically close if there is no other
power source available, connecting to both main AC busses. If external power sources are
available the APU will power either bus.

The APU GEN OFF light illuminates when the APU is operating and the APU generator
breaker is open or because the switch is on the off position.

BUS TIE Switches

The bus tie relays, which are controlled by the BUS TIE switches, isolate or parallel the main
busses. When the switches are set in the AUTO position the bus tie system operates
automatically to maintain power to both main busses.

Electrical Panel Section 3


Generator Control (GEN CTRL) Switches

Within each engine is an Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) which, when the engine is started,
automatically powers the respective main bus, as long as the GEN CTRL Switch is on. Each
individual IDG may be disconnected from their bus by turning the GEN CTRL Switch off.

Drive Disconnect Switches

When the switch is pushed the Integrated Drive Generator (IDG) is disconnected from the
engine input.

External Power Switches

When external power source voltage and frequency are within limits the AVAIL (available)
light illuminates on the switch. External power can supply both the left and right main busses
when there is no other supply of power as well as when either the IDG or APU are running.
Turning the switch on will connect the external power to the various busses.

Backup Generator (BACKUP GEN) Switches

In the event that backup power is required it is provided by a variable speed and frequency
generator mounted on each engine. When the switch is on the backup generator is armed for
operation and when it is off it opens up the control relay.

APU Control Selector

When the selector is moved to the start position it initiates the automatic start sequence and
then is spring loaded to return to the ON position. When in the ON position it opens the fuel
valve and inlet door, activates AC or DC fuel pump and powers the APU controller. When
there is no further need for the APU, the selector can be moved to the off position which
closes the APU bleed air isolation valve and initiates a normal shutdown.

Miscellaneous Section 5
Emergency Lights

When this switch is in the armed position in the event of a loss of electrical power all
emergency lights will illuminate automatically. While in the on position all the emergency
lights will illuminate and in the off position the emergency lights will not illuminate, even if
there is a loss of electrical power.

Service Interphone (SERV INTPH) Switch

*Currently not modelled in the simulation*

When the switch is in the off position it allows the independent operation of the service and
flight interphone system, and while in the on position connects the service and flight
interphone systems.

Passenger Oxygen

The passenger oxygen system automatically deploys oxygen masks in the cabin and toilets
when the cabin altitude exceeds 14,000ft. The passenger oxygen switch allows the oxygen
masks to be deployed manually.

Window Heat

These switches turn on and off the exterior anti-icing and interior antifogging on all flight deck
windows. These begin to operate as soon as electrical power is established.

Hydraulics Section 6
RAM Air Turbine (RAT)

When deployed the RAT can provide hydraulic power to the primary flight control components
which are connected to the centre hydraulic system. It also provides electrical power through
the flight envelope.

The RAT will deploy in flight if both engines are failed, both AC transfer busses are
unpowered of all three hydraulic system pressures are low. The RAT may also be deployed
manually by pressing on the RAT switch.

Once deployed the RAT cannot be stowed in the air and must be done so by an engineer on
the ground.

Left/Right Engine Primary Pump Switches

These switches pressurise the related left of right hydraulic system by the engine-driven
hydraulic pump when the engine rotates and the switches are on. When they are turned off
the engine-driven pump is turned off and depressurised.

Left/Right Demand Pump Switches

These pumps, rather than been engine driven, are electrically driven and provide
supplementary hydraulic power for periods of high system demand. They also provide a
backup power source. When in the auto position the pump operates when pressure is low or
when the system believes there will be a large system demand. When in the on position the
pumps run continuously and in the off position the pumps don’t run at all.

Fuel System Section 10

Fuel Jettison

Guard shields

Fuel Jettison is activated by arming the system, lifting the guard shields and then activating
the left and right nozzles in turn. The rate of fuel dump can be regulated by the “fuel to
remain” pull knob. Pull and turn to the right to increase flow, left turn to decrease flow.

Fuel Pumps and Cross Feed Systems

Cross feed valve switches connect left and right fuel systems.
When white bar visible, valves are open.

The fuel system includes centre tank and two main (left and
right) wing tanks. Each fuel tank has two fuel pumps feeding
fuel into the fuel system. A single pump can supply sufficient
fuel to operate one engine. The centre tank pumps have
higher output pressure than main tank pumps. Centre tank
pumps override the main tank pumps so that fuel in centre
tank is used first.
Any fuel pump can supply either engine. An engine can be fed
from opposite fuel tank by opening the cross feed valves.

Cross feed valves are normally closed to isolate left and right
fuel systems.

Automatic Flight

The Autopilot and Flight Director system allows automatic flight in both Command and Flight
Director modes. In Command mode, the autopilot is controlling the aircraft pitch, roll and
thrust. In Flight Director mode, the autopilot generates control commands and moves the
flight Director bars on Primary Flight Display to guide the pilot. The auto-throttle system
operates thrust levers to adjust thrust according to engaged autopilot modes.

Autopilot and Autothrottle


Autopilot has three channels, Pitch, Roll, and Thrust channels. Some autopilot modes control
only one channel, while other modes control two channels.

The Roll modes are single-channel.

They include:

 HDG HOLD Commands the autopilot to roll wings level, and hold the heading existing
when reaching zero bank.
 HDG SEL Turn to and maintain heading selected in MCP HDG/TRK window. The
bank angle during the turn is either automatic or can be manually set using the bank
angle selector.
 TRK HOLD Commands the autopilot to roll wings level, and hold the track existing
when reaching zero bank.
 TRK SEL Turn to and maintain track selected in MCP HDG/TRK window. The bank
angle during the turn is either automatic or can be manually set using the bank angle
selector.
 LNAV Lateral navigation. Follow FMC-generated roll commands to fly the active
route.
 LOC Capture and follow the localizer.

Basic Pitch modes are single-channel too:

 ALT HOLD Captures and holds the altitude existing when the mode was engaged.
This mode is also engaged when in V/S or FLCH mode and airplane reaches the
altitude selected in MCP Alt window.
 V/S When engaged, opens the VS / FPA window with present vertical speed, and
maintains this speed. The vertical speed can be adjusted using the VS / FPA
thumbwheel.
 FPA When engaged, opens the VS / FPA window with present flight path angle, and
maintains this angle. The flight path angle can be adjusted using the VS / FPA
thumbwheel.
 G/S Captures and holds the glideslope.

Other Pitch modes are two-channel and control both pitch and thrust:

 FLCH Starts climb or descent towards the altitude selected in MCP Alt window. If
climbing, throttles maintain Climb thrust, if descending, throttles are moved to idle.
The aircraft pitch is adjusted to maintain the speed selected in MCP IAS/Mach
window. The plane nose is lowered to accelerate and raised to decelerate.
 VNAV Vertical navigation. Both pitch and thrust are controlled to follow the vertical
profile and speed settings generated by FMC for the active route.

Phoenix Simulation Boeing 777 Main Panel
Software Panel Manual

MCP Section 1

Two thrust modes are also available, which are

 SPD Autothrottle adjusts thrust to maintain the speed selected in IAS/MACH window.
 THR Autothrottle maintains reference thrust selected in FMC and shown on EICAS
display.
 The APP mode controls both pitch and roll to follow localizer and glideslope for an
ILS approach.

The autopilot modes are operated from the Mode Control Panel (MCP)

1. Autopilot engage button. Engages autopilot in currently selected modes, if Flight


Director already engaged. If Flight Director off, engages HDG HOLD and V/S modes
when in flight.

2. Flight Director switch. Displays Flight Director bars on PFD. When switched on whilst
on the ground with no autopilots engaged arms TO/GA pitch and roll modes. When
engaged in flight with no active autopilots, engages HDG HOLD and V/S modes.

3. Autothrottle Arm switch. Arms autothrottle. Thrust controlling modes cannot be


engaged if autothrottle is not armed.

4. Autopilot Disengage bar. When pushed down, disengages the autopilot. Prevents

9. IAS/MACH Selector knob. When Rotated, sets speed in IAS/MACH window. When
Pushed while in VNAV mode, un-blanks the display to current FMC commanded
speed and allows to manually adjust the target speed. Second push blanks the
display and returns speed control to FMC.

10. Lateral navigation button. Engages LNAV mode when above 100 feet radio altitude.
Arms LNAV mode for engagement when on the ground or below 100 feet. LNAV
mode uses FMC-generated commands to follow the active route. When LNAV mode
is armed, it can be disarmed with second push. LNAV mode can be disengaged by
selecting other roll mode. Automatically disengages when LOC mode engaged and
localizer becomes alive.

11. Vertical navigation button. Engages VNAV mode when above 400 feet radio altitude.
Arms VNAV mode for engagement when on the ground or below 400 feet. VNAV
mode controls both pitch and thrust to follow the FMC-calculated vertical profile and
speed. Armed VNAV mode can be disarmed with second push. VNAV mode can be
disengaged by selecting other pitch mode. Automatically disengages when APP
mode armed.

12. FLCH button. Engages Flight Level Change mode, if Autothrottle is armed. If the
MCP altitude is higher than current altitude, a climb will be performed. The throttles
will maintain reference thrust selected in FMC (Takeoff or Climb thrust), while
elevator will pitch the aircraft to maintain the speed set in IAS/MACH window. If the
MCP altitude is lower, descend will be performed. The speed will be maintained by
elevator, and throttles will retard to idle. When aircraft intercepts the MCP altitude, it
will level off and autopilot modes will automatically switch to SPD and ALT HOLD.

When using VNAV, the normal procedure is to set your cruise (or ATC cleared) altitude in
MCP Altitude window before takeoff, and reset this altitude to zero or MDA (or as directed by
ATC) when approaching the Top of Descent point. Until a lower altitude is not selected, the
descent will not be started.

When VNAV mode is active, as in other vertical modes, the MCP altitude window is a
«restriction». When aircraft climbs or descends in VNAV mode and reaches the altitude
selected in Alt window, it levels off and pitch mode displayed on PFD changes to VNAV ALT.
Thus, the altitude window can be used for example when flying under ATC control. If ATC
clears you to climb to an altitude lower than cruise altitude set in FMC, all you need is to
select your clearance in MCP ALT window. Aircraft will level off when approaching this
altitude. As soon as another clearance is received, enter the new cleared altitude or cruise
altitude in ALT window and Push the Altitude selector knob to resume the climb.

Electrical System Section 1


The Boeing 777-200 electrical system has two main electrical buses. Electrical power is
provided by following sources:

 Two engine-driven Integrated Drive Generators (IDGs), providing power when


engines are running.

 An Auxiliary Power unit is a small jet engine located in the tailcone. It drives an
electrical generator for use on the ground and supplies bleed air required for engine
start.

 Two external power sources can be connected on the ground, if available. They
provide electrical power and bleed air for engine start.

 Main battery powers the standby bus.

The electrical system will power each main AC bus from a single source. If left and right
buses are powered by different type of source, the bus tie breakers will open to separate the
buses.

When an engine is started, the respective bus will be automatically connected to engine-
driven generator and disconnected from other sources. When an engine is stopped or a GEN
CTRL switch is selected off, the bus will transfer to other available source such as APU.

Connecting external power will also disconnect the engine generators. The standby bus is
powered by main battery and the APU, and provides standby power should all four engine
generators fail.

Two utility buses are powered from left side and right main buses and provide utility and
galley power. They will be automatically shed if electrical load exceeds power available.

The backup electrical system powers one or both transfer buses if only one main AC
generator is available or power to one or both main buses is lost. The transfer buses are
powered by two backup Permanent Magnet Generators (PMGs) mounted on the engines.

The electrical system can also be powered by deploying Ram Air Turbine inflight.

APU is started by moving the APU selector to START position. The APU spool up process
takes about half-minute.

To shut down the APU, move the APU selector to OFF position. This disconnects the APU
from electrical and pneumatic systems.

Although, the APU continues running unloaded for some time. This cool down delay protects
the APU from thermal shock. The APU will shut down automatically after the cool down is
complete.

Hydraulic System Section 2


The Boeing 777-200 Hydraulics consists of three independent systems which power different
subsystems of the aircraft. Each hydraulic system has Primary and Demand pumps. The
demand pumps automatically engage in high hydraulics power demand situations or when
primary pumps are inoperative or switched off.

Left and right primary pumps are powered by respective engines. Left and right demand
pumps are driven by electric motors. The centre system is powered by two electrically-driven
main pumps, and is backed up by two air-driven demand pumps.

In case of hydraulic failure, a Ram Air Turbine can be deployed. It will power the vital
components connected to central hydraulic system. A deployed ram air turbine cannot be
stowed in flight and will be retracted on the ground.

Engines Section 3
The engine startup controls include the engine startup panel on the overhead and fuel control
switches on the central pedestal.

Engine startup requires electrical power, fuel and bleed air supply. To be able to start the
engines, you must ensure the following:

 APU is running and is connected to electrical system, or External power supply is


available and connected, and

 Required fuel tank pumps are switched ON, and

 Bleed air is available, i.e. the pneumatic isolation valves are open (see Pneumatics).

Fuel Control Switches

Fuel Control switches

RUN: Enables fuel flow. Engine autostart


armed to be activated when start
switch is rotated to START position.

CUTOFF: Closes fuel valve. Engine is


shut down if running.

Fuel Cutoff switches on centre pedestal.

Both engines can be started automatically. The aircraft is equipped with an Autostart system,
which eliminates the need to monitor N2 RPM and engage fuel flow when reaching a certain
N2 level. When the Autostart switch is in ON position, the Fuel Control Switches can be
moved in RUN position before initiating the engine startup. The startup will be performed by
rotating a start switch into START position.

The engines are shut down by moving the Fuel Control switches to CUTOFF position. The
APU should be started or external power connected prior to all engines shutdown to prevent
loosing the main electrical power.

Phoenix Simulation Boeing 777 Aircraft Systems
Software Panel Manual

Fuel System Section 4

The fuel system includes center tank and two main (left and right) wing tanks. Each fuel tank
has two fuel pumps feeding fuel into the fuel system. A single pump can supply sufficient fuel
to operate one engine.

The center tank pumps have higher output pressure than main tank pumps. Center tank
pumps override the main tank pumps so that fuel in center tank is used first.

Any fuel pump can supply either engine. An engine can be fed from opposite fuel tank by
opening the crossfeed valves. Crossfeed valves are normally closed to isolate left and right
fuel systems.

The fuel system operation is automatic. However, the crew must switch off center tank pumps
when tank empties, which is indicated by an EICAS message.

Pneumatics System Section 5


The pneumatic system generates and distributes compressed air that is used for engine start,
air conditioning, cabin pressurization, anti-icing and for other purposes.

On the ground, prior to engine start, the compressed air is generated by the APU or is
supplied from external source, when external power is connected. With engines running, the
bleed air is taken from different stages of engine compressors.

The air conditioning system uses two PACKs, which control the air temperature and
pressurize the cabin. The pack operation is automatic, both packs are normally ON during
ground operations. Pack output is automatically increased or decreased to suit pack or bleed
air demands.

Normally all sources of compressed air and all packs are linked together. Although, different
parts of the system may be isolated by the use of Isolation valves.

Engine startup requires supply of compressed air into the engine. To be able to start the
engines, you will need either to start the APU or connect external power, and ensure that the
corresponding part of pneumatic system is not isolated.

Ground Proximity Warning System Section 7


The Ground Proximity warning system will provide aural and visual warnings when aircraft is
in danger of ground impact. It detects numerous dangerous conditions and can produce the
following warnings:

"SINKRATE" Warning of high barometric descent rate into terrain, or high sink rate near
the runway threshold. The lower your altitude is, the lower descent rate will
trigger this alarm.

"PULL UP" Excessive sink rate near ground, requires immediate action.

"TERRAIN TERRAIN" Excessive terrain closure rate.

"DON'T SINK" Alerts to an inadvertent descent into terrain after takeoff. The alert is given
after significant altitude loss, which allows for small sinking due to flap
retraction etc.

"TOO LOW, TERRAIN" Insufficient terrain clearance while not in landing configuration. The
warning envelope depends on airspeed and radio height.

"TOO LOW, GEAR" Too close to ground, at small airspeed and gear are not down. Can
be inhibited.

"TOO LOW, FLAPS" Too close to ground, at small airspeed, gear down and flaps are not in
landing position. Can be inhibited.

"GLIDESLOPE" Descending below glideslope. Active when ILS is available and gear
down. The warning envelope contains two boundaries: "soft" warning
and "hard" warning. Both boundaries are a function of glideslope
deviation and radio altitude. When aircraft penetrates the "soft"
alerting region, the pilot is given a "calm" warning; if the airplane
subsequently enters the "hard" region, the warning becomes loud.
The lower your altitude and the closer you are to glideslope
transmitter, the higher is the amount of glideslope deviation required
to trigger the warning.

This warning can be suppressed by pressing "G/S INHIBIT" button to


permit deliberate descent below the glideslope in order to utilize the
full runway length under certain conditions.

The GPWS provides aural altitude callouts during the approach at 1000, 400, 200, 100, 50,
30, 20 and 10 feet above runway. It also generates the "MINIMUMS" callout when passing
below Decision Height, and "APPROACHING MINIMUMS" 100 feet above the DH.
