Ram Air Turbine (RAT) Pump

Ram Air Turbine

The Ram Air Turbine (RAT) hydraulic pump is located in the body fairing aft of the right wing landing gear.

When deployed, The RAT provides hydraulic power to the flight controls portion of the Center Hydraulic System. The RAT provides adequate hydraulic power at speeds above 130 knots. Inflight (Air/Ground System in the air mode and airspeed > 80 kts), the RAT deploys automatically when both engines fail (N3 < 45% rpm) - signalled by the speed cards.

Ram Air Turbine switch

The RAT can be deployed manually by pushing the RAM AIR TURBINE switch. The UNLKD light illuminates and the EICAS advisory message RAT UNLOCKED displays when the RAT is not stowed and locked. When the RAT is producing pressure the Ram Air Turbine PRESS light illuminates. Once deployed, the RAT cannot be stowed in flight.

Pressure produced by the ram air turbine is isolated from the system pressure sensor. Therefore, the SYS PRESS light remains illuminated if the RAT is the only source of center system pressure.

Note : Powered by the Hot Battery Bus, the Ram Air Turbine switch is live at all times.
