Section I. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2-1. OPERATING PROCEDURES.
Before the generators of either power plant are started and operated, the power plant is towed to a worksite and installed.
Operating procedures are the same for both the AN/MJQ-32 and AN/MJQ-33.
Generator Set Operating Procedures. Detailed prestarting, start up, operating, and shutdown procedures for the
generator sets can be found on the Operating Instructions data plate located on the left-hand side of the front panel of
each ASK generator set and in the generator set technical manual TM5-6115-615-12.
Do not operate power plant until it is properly grounded. Serious injury or death by
electrocution can result from operating an ungrounded generator set.
To avoid damage to equipment, make certain of voltage, frequency, and phase requirements of
load connected to generator sets.
Make sure generator set circuit breakers and switch box rotary switch are in OFF position before
proceeding. Damage to equipment may result.
