Abstract:

Conventional and uncoventional methods of storage of engine-generator sets and a fuel supply are discussed recommendations are made based on the present state of the art. Methods for removal of waste heat and noxious fumes and control of noise and vibration are discussed to facilitate installation of engine-generator sets in shelters. Several means of utilizing engine waste heat for other shelter activities are presented and discussed also means of utilizing more conventional heating devices are considered. Installation, maintenance, and repair procedures as well as operating instructions are discussed in detail. Finally, a thermodynamic analysis and preliminary design of two Rankine-cycle power generators utilizing a turbine and reciprocating engine respectively are included. Preliminary designs of the required auxiliary equipment are presented.
