The Generator, Direct Current, G-63G developed encompasses the requirements of USAECOM Technical Requirement SCL 7828. Major component or subassembly areas involved with unit development may be classified as Alternator and associated circuitry, mechanical drive, housing, and base assembly. Electrical subsystem development included alternator optimization, rectifier selection, and design of protection and electrical output monitoring circuitry. Mechanical drive development involved matching the harmonic drive to alternator requirements and additional testing required to isolate and rectify problems of low drive efficiency and high acoustic noise levels generated. The housing was developed for minimum size and weight for containment of the alternator-drive subassembly and maximum acoustic noise suppression. The mounting base assembly developed includes consideration for universal functioning and prime factors of weight, strength, and attachment. Techniques were considered and implemented throughout the project to promote economical use of parts and fabrication processes. Use of standard parts and components where possible and joining major subassemblies such as housing and base components with the dip brazing process have been incorporated toward an economy which may become even more significant in mass production considerations. Overall unit considerations resulted in an effort to integrate individual subsystem attributes into an economical unit incorporating factors contributing to operator efficiency for total operation and observation as encountered under field conditions.
