At present, the AC power for the field vehicular system is supplied by the power frequency diesel generator set with small power that is set inside the cabin. When parking or the condition permits, electric supply can be first used. The prime motor of the active duty generator set is single-cylinder air-cooled diesel engine, but it often has a series of problems such as big vibration and noises and high heating amount. For this reason, it is necessary to research and manufacture new generator set to replace the existing diesel generator set, and multi-cylinder water-cooling silent generator set is a wonderful solution. The application of the silent generator set in field vehicular system is analyzed below:
The multi-cylinder water-cooling silent generator set has low noise, small vibration and high reliability. It can continuously and reliably run for a long time in vehicle maneuvering and parking process, thus avoiding cumbersome and time and energy-consuming de-bus working method. One set of silent generator set can totally replace two sets of common open-shelf air-cooling diesel generator sets that are used in the vehicular system equipment, thus reducing the overall weight of the vehicle power supply and saving the space and better ensuring the electricity supply need of the maneuvering process of the vehicular system. In addition, using silent generator set can effectively improve the maneuvering performance and battlefield viability of the field communication and control vehicles.
As the prime motor of the silent generator set adopts multi-cylinder water-cooling diesel engine, compared with the existing open-shelf generator set which is the single-cylinder air-cooling diesel engine equipped with the bare engine, the MTBF index is one time higher. For this reason, the reliability of the whole generator set is greatly improved and the reliability of the vehicle power supply can be improved.
After the equipment uses water-cooling silent generator set, the unit can use the same anti-freezing cooling liquid as the automobile engine and will not increase the guarantee and maintenance difficulty.
To sum up, besides using in communication and control field vehicular system, the silent generator set is widely used in tactical vehicles such as weapon release, intelligence, surveillance, reconnoiter and reactance to satisfy the long-timecontinuous and reliable electricity supply demand of the other categories of troops vehicle-mounted system in the parking and maneuvering process.
