Operating Procedures
3.5 – Engine Starting Power
Operators should always ensure the unit is charged above 80% prior to ground support engine starting.
However, circumstances may exist during use where unit recharge is not readily available and immediate
external engine starting power is required. The following provides minimum states of charge necessary to
provide ample power for an efficient engine start under specific current load demands.
!
NOTE
!
NOTE
The ambient temperature may cause the unit’s protective “over-temperature”
sensors to shut down the 120-240 ac functions (converter and charger) until
the unit cools to normal operating temperatures. If the unit shuts itself down,
get the unit into a cooler environment such as shade or air conditioning
(if possible). Perform a full function check prior to continued use once the
unit is allowed to cool. For continued use in extremely hot environments, it
is advised to send the unit back to Tesla™ for recalibration for use in these
environments.
In the event that the temperature sensors do not shut the system down,
extended use above specified limits may damage the unit. If the unit is
operated when cold or heat soaked temperatures are exceeded, a full
functional check should be accomplished prior to continued use.

3.6 – Temperature Specifications
Cold/Hot Soaked Temperature
The ambient temperature that a unit is exposed to for one (1) hour or more establishes the unit’s cold/
hot soaked stabilization temperature. If the unit’s cold/hot soaked temperature is outside the normal
operating temperature range, the unit must be stabilized prior to operation. For COLD SOAKED temperature
stabilization, the unit must be placed in an environment with a temperature above +10°C (+41°F) for 3
hours or a temperature above +20°C (+68°F) for 2 hours. For HOT SOAKED temperature stabilization, the
unit must be placed in an environment with a temperature below +38°C (+100°F) for 1 hour.

Check Unit Internal Resistance (Test for Shorts)
This section deals with “normal function” test proce­dures, and includes all steps necessary to ensure that
the TI58D MPU-24 is operating within specified para­meters prior to use. A digital multimeter (an example
is shown in Figure 7.2.1) capable of measuring dc and ac voltage and resistance will be required to perform
some of the tests. It is essential to test for shorts to detect any problems with the unit. First, set the
multimeter to the “resistance”. Next, test to see if both terminals are isolated from the chassis ground and
the line ground using the steps below. In steps 2, 3, 5 and 6, a reading of greater than 10 MΩ will assure no
shorts exist. In steps 1 and 4, the multimeter should read less then 1Ω.
1.Place the negative probe on the
ac ground probe ( J or L) and the
positive probe on an exposed
part of the metal case.
2.Move the positive probe to the
dc positive post on the dc output
connector.
3.Move the positive probe to
the dc negative post on the dc
output connector.
4.Move the positive probe to one
of the four screws securing the
dc output connector to the unit
casing.
5.Move the negative probe to
the dc negative post on the dc
output connector.
6.Move the negative probe to the
dc positive post on the dc output
connector.
Check DC Voltage Reading at DC Receptacle Terminals
To verify that the power cells are fully charged, set the digital
mulitmeter to measure dc voltage. Place the positive probe (red)
on the positive post of the dc output connector, as shown in Figure
3.9.3. Next, place the negative probe on the negative post. The
multimeter display should read approximately 28.5 Vdc (± 0.5 Vdc)
when power cells are fully charged and the unit is plugged into an
ac power source. When the unit is not plugged into an ac power
source, the mulitmeter display should read 25.5 Vdc.

Operating Procedures
Connect DC Power To Aircraft (Low Power Demand)
Low power demand is defined by a requirement of 10 amps or less. Connect dc power to aircraft ground
power receptacle. DC bus power should come on and aircraft voltmeter should indicate 28.5 Vdc to 27 Vdc
(26.5 Vdc minimum). If aircraft power demand is less than 5 amps converter output will remain at 28.5
Vdc (only one GREEN LED status indicator bar will illuminate). If aircraft power demand exceeds 10 amps
converter voltage output will decrease and two or more LED status indicator bars will illuminate.
Figure 3.11.2 Starting aircraft with
TI58D MPU-24
Connect DC Power To Aircraft (High Power Demand)
High power demand is defined by a requirement of greater than 10 amps. Connect to aircraft ground power
receptacle. DC bus power should come on and aircraft voltmeter should indicate 28.5 Vdc to 23.5 Vdc (23
VCD minimum). If current demand is greater than 10 amps, converter output voltage will drop below 28.0
Vdc and LED status indicator lights will illuminate indicating current is being drawn from the power cells.
The greater the current draw, the quicker the LED status indicator will approach red. Note the LED status
indicator shows the status of the power cells. !
NOTE
When all LED status indicator bars illuminate, both the converter and power
cells are supplying 24 Vdc power output for current demands above 10 amps.

Section 6 – Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why should I buy a Tesla™ TI58D MPU-24?
Tesla™ MPU has dramatic advantages over standard aircraft batteries. The advantages include power, durability, and
longevity. A Tesla™ MPU will provide more power for testing avionics and starting than comparable competitors. The dry cells
are more resistant to heat and vibration. A Tesla™ MPU does not experience thermal runaway. A Tesla™ MPU is equipped
with a built in intelligent charger.
2. Do the cells have memory?
The cells have no memory. The user can plug the TI58D MPU-24 into AC for charging regardless of the unit’s current state of
charge. The intelligent charger will keep a fully charged battery by trickle charging. Keeping a fully charged TI58D MPU-24
plugged into ac when not in use will prolong the life of the batteries.
3. How are Micro Power Units used in Aviation Support?
There are many ways a MPU will benefit your operation. By using it for pre-flight testing, you will avoid depleting the aircraft’s
battery. You can start the aircraft’s engine with the MPU as well. In the hangar, when connected to ac power, the MPU will
provide 28.5 Vdc for avionics testing and will also recondition and recharge the aircraft’s battery.
4. How much power will my TI58D MPU-24 provide?
The MPU will provide up to 10 continuous amps with ac line voltage and 1500 peak starting amps directly from the internal
cells.
5. How many engine starts will my MPU provide until it is depleted?
The MPU back-charges, almost instantly, once the aircraft is started and the generator is on line. This “power flywheel”
feature enables the MPU to recharge itself right from the aircraft it started in less than 30 seconds.
6. How do you prolong the life of the TI58D MPU-24’s cells?
All you need to do is plug the unit in to the appropriate ac power outlet the system requires. AC power will recharge the
system and keep the cells healthy. Users who regularly plug the system in can expect to get 5-7 years from their cells before
they need to be replaced.
7. Is it waterproof?
Water-resistant but not waterproof. See Section 3.7 for further information.
8. Why does the cooling fan run continuously when the MPU is plugged into AC power?
Why does the cooling fan slow down?
The cooling fan speed varies to regulate the temperature of the internal circuitry when plugged into an ac power source.
9. Can one person transport it?
Micro Power Units are designed to be handled by one person. The TI58D MPU-24 provides a rugged nylon strap attached to
the top of the unit that helps easily transport and place into the aircraft. See Section 3.8 for more information.
