Abstract:

The Cummins 45 KW, diesel engine driven DED, Model JS-6-G generator was given a complete technical inspection and connected to a resistance load board to determine load characteristics. After the characteristics had been determined the generators were connected in turn to a NIKE HERCULES and to a HAWK missile system to determine their adequacy for supplying power to air defense systems. The tests used with both systems were similar and consisted of two phases. In phase one the generators in turn supplied power for the battery control area equipment. In phase two the generators supplied power to the launcher area equipment. During the test with the HAWK system, special note was taken of the generator interference problem. Generators were tested, also, for transportability, reliability and general ease of maintenance, fuel and oil consumption, and adequacy of the muffler to reduce audible noise. The generators are capable of supplying the required power. Author
