14.8. Generator



During the work with the generator it is obligatory to switch-off the accumulator.

Before removal of wires from the generator it is necessary to mark them, for repeated installation strictly on the places.

It is forbidden to switch-off the accumulator or the generator at the working engine.

When carrying out electrowelding works to disconnect the accumulator and the generator.

Check of operability of the generator

1. To check and, if necessary, to adjust a tension of a driving belt of the generator.
2. To connect the voltmeter to accumulator plugs.
3. Watching indications of the voltmeter, to start the engine. Tension can fall in a starter operating mode to 9 volts.
4. To increase engine turns to 4000 rpm, at the same time tension has to increase to 13,7–14,6 volts. It indicates normal operation of the generator and regulator of tension.
5. At turns of the engine of 4000 rpm to turn on driving beam of headlights or other powerful consumers of the electric power, at the same time power failure has to make no more than 0,4 volts.
6. In case of considerable deviations of tension when checking the generator needs to be checked in a specialized workshop.
