Section XIII. MAINTENANCE OF GENERATOR ASSEMBLIES
This section contains maintenance procedures for the generator assemblies. There are two types of
generators used in the generator set. The 50/60 Hz generator is used in both the 50/60 Hz utility, and 50/60 Hz
precise generator sets. The 400 Hz generator is used only in the 400 Hz precise generator set. Both generators
are drip-proof, rotating-field, synchronous, brushless, fan cooled units. Mounting for the generator is provided
by the generator feet bolted to the skid base and the housing bolted to the engine flywheel housing. Rotational
power is provided by the blower and coupling assembly which is bolted to the generator rotor shaft and the
3-95. GENERATOR MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS.
