PART A - SUPERVISE 15-KW GENERATOR OPERATIONS
As a team chief of an operational DS water supply point operating on a
wellhead in a field environment, you will have the requirement to supervise
operations of, and PMCS on, the 15-kw generator.
High voltage is produced when operating this generator set. Death or severe
burns may result if soldiers fail to observe caution. Do not allow soldiers
to operate the generator until the ground terminal stud has been connected
to a suitable ground.
Make sure all soldiers under your supervision know and understand their
environmental stewardship responsibilities.
Physical damage to the
environment should be minimized during field operations. The potential for
environmental damage during field training missions is greater. Point out
that every effort should be made to identify early any equipment/vehicle
fluid leaks so that they can be cleaned up and properly disposed of as soon
Emphasize that the use of live vegetation for camouflage
during training should be discouraged because of its detrimental effects on
Ensure vehicles using your area of operations stick to
established traffic patterns and park in designated areas to minimize
Once operations are completed, environmental damage
should be repaired to the greatest extent possible.
Check that all soldiers under your supervision know, understand, and follow
the performance measures in task 091-109-7004 found in STP 10-77W14-SM-TG
when operating the 15-kw generator.
1. The first step in operating any Army equipment
your soldiers perform before-operation maintenance
on the generator each
time they operate it.
They should log all actions
taken and deficiencies
found on DA Form 2404. This form should be given to
you at the end of each
a. After before-operation PMCS has been performed, have the soldier set
the controls on the generator set. Your soldiers should have checked to see
that the reconnection board is in the 416V position and that the frequency
selector switch is set to 60 Hz. If an auxiliary fuel supply is used, the
selector valve handle should be in the AUXILIARY position. If the generator
set fuel tank is to be used, position the handle in the SET TANK position.
All access doors should be closed with the exception of those for the
generator air vent and the control cubicle. The generator set's air inlet
doors should be locked in the open position.
Check that the DC circuit
