What is Electrical Wiring Interconnection System?
Electrical wiring interconnection system(EWIS) means any wire, wiring device, or combination of these, including termination devices, installed in any area of the aeroplane for the purpose of transmitting electrical energy, including data and signals between two or more intended termination points.
This course provides delegates with an overview of the development of enhanced aeroplane EWIS maintenance and the Enhanced Zonal Analysis Procedure.
Delegates will also learn about the technical aspects of typical EWIS installations, supporting inspection techniques and an introduction to AMC 20-22 Aeroplane EWIS training programmes.
Our Bahrain courses are delivered in cooperation with the Gulf Aviation Academy. Please visit the GAA website for upcoming dates.
This course is suitable for individuals involved in EWIS, either in a regulatory oversight capacity, or within industry managing training on EWIS.
This training course will include the following topics:
- Safe handling of Aeroplane Electrical Systems
- Line replaceable units (LRU)
- Troubleshooting procedures and electrical measurement
- Construction and navigation of typical aeroplane wiring system overhaul or wiring practices manuals
- Types of inspection
- Human factors in inspections
- Zonal areas and typical damage
- Contamination sources, materials, cleaning and protection procedures
- Correct identification of different wire types
- Inspection criteria and damage tolerance
- Repair and preventative maintenance procedures
- Procedures to identify, inspect and find the correct repair for common types of connective devices found on typical aeroplanes
- Procedures for replacement of all parts of common types of connective devices found on typical aeroplanes
At the end of this course, the participants will be able to:
- Understand the basis of enhanced aeroplane EWIS maintenance
- Understand the philosophies behind the Enhanced Zonal Analysis Procedure
- Understand the broad technical aspects of enhanced EWIS inspection techniques
- Demonstrate an overall knowledge of the elements needed in an effective EWIS training programme
- Understand the regulatory expectations for effective delivery of initial and recurrent EWIS training in an approved organisation under their regulatory oversight
Delegates would benefit from having had exposure to, or experience of approved maintenance programmes, aircraft maintenance manuals, aircraft wiring diagrams, and other such instructions for continuing airworthiness.
