(6) Operation at high altitudes. The generator sets are rated
a 3 kw up to 8,000 feet altitude.
set output above 8,000 feet, use the following formula:
7% x actual altitude - 8,000 x 3 kw = kw derating
Example: 0.07 x 13,000 - 8,000 x 3 kw = 1.05 kw derating
3 kw - 1.05 kw = 1.95 kw derated power at 13,000 feet.
