Abstract : The report presents data on the characteristics of the 100-ampere alternator and 400-ampere d-c generator systems found in most tracked vehicles currently used. The characteristics presented are based on the overall generating and control system including the generator, regulator and rectifiers where applicable. The details of measurement and resultant parameters are presented. The report also includes the most common causes of electrical transients and representative magnitudes. It would appear from this analysis that the 100-ampere system yields transients of much greater time duration than noted for the 400-ampere system. (Author)
