1.11.1 Base Frame Assembly and Unit Hood Assembly.
The Generator Set 150 kW consists of the base frame assembly (3, figure 1-2) on which the assemblies
and the unit hood assembly are mounted. The engine and generator compartments are separated from
one another by a panel and is fastened to the base frame assembly. The base frame assembly is a
welded aluminum frame on which the following components are mounted:
Identification plate for the Generator Set 150 kW (10)
Identification plate for the base frame, complete
J3 SLAVE RECEPTACLE 24 VOLTS (15) and designation plate for the J3 SLAVE RECEPTACLE
Four lifting rings (16) for hoisting the Generator Set 150 kW
Six eyebolts (17) for securing the unit hood assembly
The unit hood assembly (1) protects the assemblies from the elements, and muffles the noise produced
by the diesel engine and synchronous generator. On each long side it has two swing-up flaps, supported
on gas cylinders, providing access to the engine and generator compartment and the control cabinet as-
sembly displays and controls. For voltage equalization, each flap is connected by a grounding strap to the
unit hood assembly, and the unit hood assembly is grounded to the base frame assembly with a strap.
The control cabinet assembly connectors are accessible through an opening in the unit hood assembly
that is covered by a protective profile. Four eyebolts are mounted on the top surface to allow removal of
the unit hood assembly.
1.11.2 Engine Compartment.
The engine compartment contains the diesel engine with starter, battery charging alternator, and fuel and
oil filters, the subcurrent filter assembly, the scavenge pump assembly, and the engine preheating assem-
The diesel engine (2) is fastened to the base frame assembly with two shock absorbers and two engine
mounts, and connected to the synchronous generator with a clutch. It is cooled by the electro-hydraulic
fan (EHG). Cooling air is drawn in at the front of the unit hood assembly, blown over the diesel engine
cooling fins, and exhausted through the two air leading ducts in the unit hood assembly. Combustion air is
drawn in at the back of the unit hood assembly and delivered to the diesel engine through the air filter
assembly (12) integrated into the partition, and the turbocharger. Exhaust gases are discharged through
the silencer assembly (6) mounted under the base frame assembly and then into two exhaust hoses. En-
gine oil is filtered through the oil filter located on the diesel engine, and the subcurrent filter assembly
(14). The subcurrent filter assembly is connected to the diesel engine by two oil lines. It performs the
function of the oil filter on the EHG, whose centrifugal oil cleaner is not accessible for maintenance. For
oil changes and repair operations, engine oil is pumped out with the manually operated scavenge pump
assembly (5), which is equipped with a stopcock. The intake side is connected to the oil sump with an oil
hose. A ball cock with handle is fitted to the oil drain hose.
