    Load balancing on an MEP-805B

    Your generator is 30kw, so it would be 20 kw single phase, your 18kw is under that. That much heat it can displace with out doing damage. I would add a 5-8 kw load to the unused phase to reduce heat in the gen head. It will use more fuel, but it's better for the long term. As for raising...

    Load balancing on an MEP-805B

    You have 2 480 volt single phase loads? If so, the unloaded phase will generate heat that has to be dissipated by the generator head. It wont shake or side load the generator. The generator is making the same amperage on all 3 phases it's just has no where to go so it becomes heat. 3 phase...

    MEP-804B Missing Gauges

    The 4th guage is the volt meter. As for the source of them, the parts manual will give you the manufacture and part number. The ones on my 2 sets are pretty inaccurate so after market might be better. There was a mwo to change the rear tires from dual ndt's to singles.

    MEP-804B Missing Gauges

    You are correct on the cooland, the middle missing one is frequency, and to the right of that one is the percent amperage guage.

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    Problem solved. In the -10 it says not to close the ac circuit interrupt switch on either generator nor close the load contractors until directed to do so. I did not close the contactors in the in the distro box because of this. Come to find out, thank you schematics. You need to to feed the...

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    I do. I just found one of the 2 paralleling/switch box cables had a short to ground, fixed that now to check the other.

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    That would have been to easy. Time to get deep into the manual.

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    I see where you are coming from. As for the wire labeling its correct, but we know how that goes. I will trace them out from the gen head (T1-T10) to the switch box. Hopefully that will fix it. Thanks for the help.

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    That's what I thought. Each gen has l1 l2 and l3 to their respective terminals. Plus I have a 3 phase motor hooked up to the distribution box and it spins the same way when each gen powers it. If the phases are mismatched the motor will change direction. Atleast that's what normally happens...

    MEP-804B paralleling issues.

    Good evening everyone, We picked up an MJQ-48B power plant for work through GSA excess. They have a build date of 12/2010, but they are both like new. Everything works great except for the paralleling. I've followed the -10 manual and all I get on the synchronizing lights is a steady dim...

    Hunter H1 heater engine and shelter USAF

    I just picked one of these up today, it's missing the injector line for the petter engine. Hopefully I can get it up and running.

    S-280 shelter floor replacement.

    If anyone was curious what the floor looks like without the sheetmetal here you go. Haha. There were so many holes and oxidation rot in the aluminum it needed to go. New aluminum was going to be to expensive, and I didnt want to scrap it as it's my radio shack. I decided to go with plywood and...

    Trailer Towing Question: USAF H-1 Heater Trailer

    That trailer is designed for flight line use, not highway. I put mine in the bed of my truck with basic ramps and a come along. Those heaters make some heat too.

    2000 DHS Systems Drash trailer generator question.

    I understand. The engine runs great, and the genset makes good power. The mag pickup works, I think the controller was bad and they took the actuator off. I can get the speed set to 60hz with the set screws, I just cant load it up too much without having to adjust it to stay on speed. What's...

    2000 DHS Systems Drash trailer generator question.

    The controller is there, but its flashing a fault code indicating bad actuator or output. I hooked up a comparable actuator to it and it still failed. I just bought a controller and actuator that's for the isuzu. Hopefully it will be here in a couple days.

    2000 DHS Systems Drash trailer generator question.

    I have the manual from drash, I had requested a parts quote from them but havent heard back. I ended up buying an actuator and GAC governor controller that says it's for an isuzu. Hopefully it will work.

    2000 DHS Systems Drash trailer generator question.

    A quick question for anyone with one of the DHS trailers with the Isuzu 4le1 engine. I need a picture of what it uses for the governor actuator. Mine is missing, hopefully. I'm hoping it's not just a speed set screw that keeps the frequency close like cheap light trailers use. Thanks.
