AC Power System
Q7-20. What is the maximum dc amperage output of
the NC-2A mobile electric power plant?
The NC-10C is equipped with an ac generator that
develops 90 kVA at 0.8 PF, 115/200 volt, three-phase,
four-wire, 400-Hz power when driven at 1,846 rpm.
Generator field flashing and excitation are provided by
a 24-volt battery. When the engine is running,

The ac voltage regulator is also a two-stage
magnetic amplifier type. The regulator supplies total
power to the ac generator field circuit and regulates the
output voltage within 1 percent no load to full load. The
input to the voltage regulator is 200 volts, three-phase,

LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Identify the
components of mobile motor-generator sets
Q7-18. What is the total number of generators
located on the NC-2A mobile electric power
Mobile motor-generator sets (MMGs) perform the
same function as the MEPPs, but they are not
self-contained and require an external source of
electrical power for operation. The MMGs are used
primarily in hangars on shore stations or on the hangar
decks of aircraft carriers where the running of an
