    15K Diesel Gen set

    I believe there are two errors in the "240 VOLT 1 PHASE CONNECTION" diagram in the MEP-016B manual (TM 5-6115-615-12). 1. Two T-2's are shown. The terminals should probably read, from left to right: T-1 T-4 T-2 T-5 T-6 T-3 .. although any arrangement of the coils which gives the same...

    15K Diesel Gen set

    RE: Re: 15K Diesel Gen set If I had an MEP-xxx set to play with, I would be glad to figure out and document the means of making 120/240v 3-wire single phase from it. But I think there's enough here. Also, according to the Stewart-Stevenson nameplate data indicating it has a 120V outlet and...

    I did not mean to hijack the thread, did you have time to check the alternator for the number of wires coming from the stator? also similar model? CMGT-Quiet generator-Deutz 5KW,15KW,30KW http://www.stewartandstevenson.com/Services/Products/GovernmentSales/Product+Support.htm

    15K Diesel Gen set

    attachment is the zipfiles of schematics showing switching and current flow highlighted for each mode of the MEP-017 and the file 240V_1phase.gif shows where to check for a "neutral" when the set is set to 240V single phase. I suggest the neutral is the T5-T6 conection. I suggest the MEP-016 can...

    15K Diesel Gen set

    Ok I see the point. They do not make single phase 120V and 240V at the same time. In that case, the above reconnection diagram could apply. The AC gensets I mentioned all show to be three-coil, six-wire sets. Trying to study the manuals from a standpoint of changing a wire or two and having...

    The short answer is that these have a switch to do that for you. The MEP-016 and MEP-017 are 6-wire 3-winding sets. I'll be the first to admit I do not know those sets, nor the one mentioned above, personally. I only know that to rewire a 208V WYE for single phase 240/120V, the connections...

    15K Diesel Gen set

    according to this, the set makes 120V to neutral, so it is a WYE setup. If you need 120/240V, and if indeed the alternator is a 6 (or 12)-wire one, and all three (or 6) windings have both ends available for connecting, you can convert that to a single phase 120/240VAC set by placing two of the...
