The aircraft's primary source is an aircraft electrical system containing all the systems to produce, transmit, distribute, utilize, and store electrical energy.

The primary function of the electrical system is to generate electricity. The electrical system uses either a generator or an alternator. The power can be modified further with components like transformers, inverters, and rectifiers to change the voltage or current. The output of the generator is 115-120V/400HZ AC, 28V DC, or 14V DC-in most of the aviator.
