Image Description

Because the 787 uses more electricity than do other Boeing airplanes, the 787 generates more electricity, via six generators: two on each engine and two on the auxiliary power unit (APU, a small turbine engine in the tail).
The P&WC APS5000 APU is the industry's first all-electric APU for large commercial aircraft. This single-shaft, variable-speed gas turbine APU develops 450kVA of electrical power at sea level that starts and operates up to 43,100 feet. The APS5000 APU was designed exclusively for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It is the quietest APU in its class with the lowest emissions in the industry.
