    S3 variables state

    Hi Nico, I was observing some behaviors of my cockpit respect the leveld panel and I noticed something not really correct about the state (S2 or S3) of some variables...
    First question: the S3 bat hot bus is in funcition of the "BAT" pushbutton or of the BAT source selector position?
    According to this reply and if you would make a correction in your lekseecon code, I could list you all vars which need to be changed in order to follow the correct state.
    Let me know if you would do the work and if my list can make it easier to you.

    Thanks again

    Edoardo

    Negative: S3 is OFF if Var 861 is 0. Don't know by heart what cause that in the sim.
    The only lekseecon Variable affected by state S3 is Var 700 (IRS annunciators).

    Note that with lekseecon I try to give exactly the same information as in the Level-D panel. To my knowledge there is no diffrence. So if you think there is, please post. And you should not compare it with a real Boeing 767, its elec systems are still a little more complicated then the Level-D 767 ...

    mhmmm I'm not sure to understand...
    S1 indentify C&D state...
    S2 identify the state when one on the GENs are activated or not
    S3 doesn't identify when the BAT is on???

    Please make me that clear so I can better post my question of before...thanks

    Re: S3 variables state

    From the Manual section 1.6.1 Cockpit States:
    • S1: Cold and Dark
    • S2: Left Bus Off
    • S3: Battery Hot Bus is Off

    S2 and S3 are states. How we arrive at these states, is modeled by the Level-D, not by lekseecon. S2 is based on a SDK variable available in Var 862, S3 is based on a SDK variable available in Var 861.

    Note also the difference between the battery bus (Var 860) and the battery hot bus (Var 861) ...

    S1 is an additional state created by lekseecon (see bit 0 of Var 782), it is true if Left Bus is off and Right Bus is off and Battery is off
    =====
    Hope this makes things more clear...
    =====
    Just check if there is a difference in the Variables of lekseecon and what you see in the sim. I don't think so, but if you see something, please report.
