1. Scenario. The soldier is in the jungle under heavy fire, and he
has been using power for his equipment from a 60 kw generator. The
60 kw generator was destroyed in a mortar attack, and the soldier
must now use the 5 or 10 kw generator set, that is on his site. It
is very hot and humid and the soldier must properly install and
5 or 10 kw generator, under these stressful tactical
Characteristics of 5-kw Gas Generator.
The 5-kw gas generator comes in two models, the MEP-017A and
MEP-022A. The following characteristics are similar to both models:
rated at 5 kw, 0.8 power factor (pf), generator output can be 120/240
volts, single-phase, 2-wire; 120 volts, three-phase, 3-wire, or
120/208 volts, three-phase, 4-wire.
The difference between the
models is that the MEP-017A has 60 Hz
