a. The tests described in this section require
generator set operation and provide verification of
generator set performance characteristics.
All tests shall be conducted with the
240/416 volt connections, unless other-
All tests, that are ap-
plicable, will be conducted on both
Mode I and Mode II generator sets. Mode
I tests shall be conducted at 60 Hz only
unless otherwise specified.
16-3. Engine Inspection.

Fahrenheit or Centigrade, depending on the instru-
ment scale, but will be converted to degrees Fahren-
heit in all cases.
Barometric pressures will be
measured by a mercurial barometer which will be
corrected for the temperature of the scale, the mer-
cury, for vapor pressure and for the location of the
barometer with regard to altitude and latitude. Am-
eroid barometers will not be used.
d. Operational procedures required in support of
the individual tests specified herein shall be per-
