Abstract : This report consists of three volumes: Volume I - 15 kW DoD Generator Set; Volume II - 30 kW DoD Generator Set; Volume III - 60 kW DoD Generator Set. Government approved modifications to the military standard 15 kW Diesel Engine Driven (DED) Generator Set were made to reduce noise levels and improve reliability. Tests performed to a government approved test plan showed all design changes to be sound in concept. Further reliability testing should be accomplished after deficiencies resulting from testing are corrected. (fr)
