The Boeing 747-100, nicknamed the "Jumbo Jet," is the wide-body passenger aircraft that laid the foundation for the entire family of long-haul Boeing 747 airliners. This aircraft has become a hugely significant aircraft in transport aviation. The need to create a passenger aircraft with a large capacity was the increase in the number of passenger air travel in the mid-sixties. This has led to a greater concentration of aircraft at the world's airports. And in order to relieve congestion at major airports, the Boeing 747-100 was created, which reduced operating costs for long haul and international air travel.

The first sketches of the new aircraft were shown in August 1965. And in 1966, Boeing Commercial Airplanes presented the configuration of a double-deck airliner, which received the digital designation "747". The initial design of the aircraft assumed a completely double-deck structure, but then, due to difficulties encountered, the project was revised in favor of lengthening the fuselage and reducing the volume of the upper deck. For this reason, the profile of the Boeing 747 aircraft has acquired its recognizable "hump". The first customer for the new long-haul aircraft was Pan American World Airways, which placed an initial order for 25 Boeing 747s.

The Boeing 747-100 was the first modification in the Boeing 747 family. The aircraft was shaped like a low-wing monoplane with a sweep of 37,5 degrees. The wingspan is 59,64 meters with a fuselage length of 70,66 meters. Four Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7A turbojet engines with a thrust of about 208,9 kN were installed under the wing of the aircraft, in gondolas.

The cabin was constructed originally universal, so that later had the opportunity to convert passenger planes to transport and cargo variants.

The three-class layout Boeing 747-100 366 cabin can accommodate seats in the two-class passenger seats 452. When economical odnoklassovoy interior layout, Boeing 747-100, capable of accommodating passengers 490.

The first Boeing 747-100, was built 2 September 1968 years. He was raised in the air in February 9 1969 years. After passing all the tests and obtain a certificate of flight, the aircraft was handed over to the airline's operation «Pan American», which in January 1 1970 year made its first commercial flight on this plane. The first European airline, which has received Boeing 747-100, became German «Lufthansa», in which the three data of the aircraft were delivered.

The latest version of the basic aircraft was delivered in «Pan American» 2 1976 year in July. Then the attention of the company «Boeing Commercial Airplanes» has been given to the production of upgraded aircraft Boeing 747-100. Which have the following options:

- Boeing 747-100B, an improved version of the 747-100, with a reinforced wing, fuselage and landing gear structure. This version was also equipped with Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7Fs engines with a thrust of 215,1 kN. The first customer of this version of the aircraft was Iran Air, which received its first Boeing 747-100B on August 2, 1979.

- Boeing 747SR (Short Range), version of the aircraft, designed specifically for the airlines short and medium range, but with a large number of passengers. In fact, Boeing 747SR, is a short-range version of the Boeing 747-100. This version has a lower fuel capacity. Maximum passenger Boeing 747SR, was increased to 550 people.

- Boeing 747-100M, cargo-passenger version of the aircraft with a cargo door located on the left side, just behind the wing bearing.

- Boeing 747SCA, version, designed for the transportation of the space shuttle, "shuttle"

- Boeing 747LL, version of the aircraft used to test various turbojet engines.

The last aircraft in the Boeing 747-100SR version was delivered to Japan Airlines in September 1986. For the entire production period from 1986 to 1986, about 250 Boeing 747-100 airliners with all modifications were built.

Frequency ATV31CU15M2 differs from the EI-P7012-075H frequency converter by its real nominal IF power, the PWM frequency of the controller, the logic of the system for self-diagnostics of the converter interruptions, and also to a greater extent by the presence of various internal secondary functions that are easy to configure and perform specialized tasks and completely replace a pro-electronics for performing automated work of external equipment without the use of additional external elements such as controllers, operator's computers, industrial computers. These factors play a crucial role in the search for a frequency converter for various applications.

The definition of error codes and subsequent high-quality repairs on modern equipment of frequency converters, which are produced by danfos, delta, vesper and other global brands, are carried out by prom electric. Dismantling and installation of IGBT modules, which are very expensive components in the entire device of the converter equipment. The difference between the IGBT transistor and the IGBT module is that the module can contain one or more IGBT transistors, sometimes connected in parallel according to the Darlington scheme to increase the switching power, and in some cases the control circuit. IGBT - a bipolar transistor with an insulated gate, is a powerful semiconductor device commonly used as an electronic key for medium and high voltages. Due to the combination of the advantages of a bipolar transistor and a field-effect transistor, a large switching power and a small required controllable power are achieved, since the control is carried out not by current but by potential, which leads to a very high efficiency of these components.
