Section I. OPERATING PROCEDURES
Operating Procedures. The typical mission for any mobile power generating equipment can be
described in three steps or phases. In the first phase, the power unit is towed to the worksite and in-
stalled by unit level technicians (paragraph 4-2). In the second phase of the mission, the operator
starts the generator set, runs it to power a system or equipment, and eventually shuts it down. In the
final phase, the power unit is dismantled, packed up and either moved to a new work site or returned to
standby status (paragraph 4-3). This final phase is also accomplished by unit level technicians.
Do not operate generator set until it is properly grounded (paragraph 4-2, b.)
Serious injury or death by electrocution can result from operating an un-
grounded generator set.
Operating noise level of generator can cause hearing damage. Ear
protectors, as recommended by medical or safety officer, must be worn when
working near power unit.
To avoid damage to equipment, make certain of voltage, frequency, and
phase requirements of load connected to generator set.
Before starting generator set, do your Before PMCS as described in table 3-2.
In order to perform the operators task during the mission, refer to the data plate located on the right-
hand side of the generator set control cubicle. Follow the operating instructions on the data plate to
start and run the generator set. Monitor and adjust generator set power output as required during
operation. At the end of the mission, shut down the generator set in accordance with the operating
instructions on the data plate. For a copy of the information on the data plate, as well as more detailed
operating procedures for the generator set, refer to TM 5-6115-585-12. For trailer operating
procedures, refer to TM 9-2330-202-14&P.
Section Il. OPERATION OF AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT
