Abstract : This report presents findings of a study to determine the feasibility of using the Model 770 Programmable Diagnostic System (PDS-770) to test 1.5, 10, and 45 KW Engine Generator Sets. The PDS-770 is capable of diagnosing malfunctions in spark and compression ignition engines and their accessories. Results of the study showed conclusively that the three generator sets could be successfully tested. The results further indicate that engine generator sets ranging in size from small one kilowatt units up through sets which deliver thousands of kilowatts can feasibly be tested. (Author)
