1.9 EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES.
The 400-Hz synchronous generator in the Generator Set 150 kW generates phase/line voltages of
120/208 volts. Maximum permissible phase current is 521 A. It is driven by an g-cylinder diesel engine
with a continuous power output of 186 kW at 2182 RPM. The air, fuel, and oil filters are dimensioned so
that the Generator Set 150 kW is suitable for desert conditions, An Engine Preheating Assembly is pro-
vided to allow operation at less than -22 °F (-30 °C). Fuel is supplied from a tank with a diesel fuel ca-
pacity of 101.7 gallons (385 liters). With a full tank and at full load, operating time is approximately 10
hours (correspondingly longer at partial load). The Generator Set 150 kW contains connection, activation,
deactivation, and operational monitoring systems and can be operated independently. The Generator Set
150 kW is mounted in pairs on the EPP III pallet frame. Both Generator Sets 150 kW are connected to
the PDU. They operate in parallel to generate the power delivered from the EPP III to the ECS and RS
loads (see TM 9-6115-669-13&P).
