On January 7, 2013, approximately 1021 japanese normal time, smoke used to be chanced on via cleansing team of workers within the aft cabin of a Japan airways (JAL) Boeing 787-8, JA829J, which used to be parked at a gate at normal Edward Lawrence Logan foreign Airport (BOS), Boston, Massachusetts. in regards to the related time, a upkeep supervisor within the cockpit saw that the auxiliary strength unit (APU)—the sole resource of plane energy on the time—had instantly close down. presently later on, a mechanic opened the aft digital gear (E/E) bay and located heavy smoke and hearth coming from front of the APU battery case.2 No passengers or crewmembers have been aboard the aircraft on the time, and not one of the upkeep or cleansing body of workers aboard the plane was once injured. plane rescue and firefighting group of workers spoke back, and one firefighter got minor accidents. The aircraft had arrived from Narita overseas Airport, Narita, Japan, as an often scheduled passenger flight operated as JAL flight 008. The APU battery presents energy to begin an APU in the course of flooring and flight operations. Flight info recorder (FDR) information confirmed that the APU used to be begun approximately 1004 whereas the plane used to be being taxied to the gate after arrival at BOS. The FDR information additionally confirmed that, approximately 36 seconds sooner than the APU close down at 1021:37, the voltage of the APU battery begun fluctuating, shedding from an entire cost of 32 volts to twenty-eight volts approximately 7 seconds earlier than the shutdown. The APU battery contains 8 lithium-ion cells which are hooked up in sequence and assembled in rows of 4 cells. each one battery telephone has a nominal voltage of 3.7 volts. The cells have a lithium cobalt oxide compound chemistry and include a flammable electrolyte liquid.
