200 kW TACTICAL QUIET GENERATOR SET
OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS Continued
OPERATION IN EXTREME HEAT ABOVE 120F (49C)
Operating the generator set with restricted air flow for cooling can cause the generator set to
overheat. Keep all access door inlet panels clear to ensure maximum air flow for engine and
generator cooling. Failure to comply can result in poor engine performance and possible
overheating and automatic shutdown.
Keep generator set doors closed to optimize engine cooling, keep the engine clean, and reduce noise.
Check vents and radiator air passages frequently for obstructions.
Check coolant temperature indicator frequently for any indication of overheating.
Allow sufficient space for fuel expansion when filling fuel tank (WP 0016 00).
Keep generator clean and free of dirt. Clean obstructions from generator intake and outlet screens.
Clean external surface of engine when generator set is not operating.
Using Table 1, determine the allowable load capacities for the 100 kW TQG for local operating temperatures. Notify
maintenance to evaluate and adjust TQG loads as necessary. It may be necessary to add another TQG or to reduce the
Table 1. High Temperature Load Capacities.
