Lamp: Shutdown

Indicates that one or more of the phase voltages has dropped below

low ac voltage threshold for time delay seconds.

CODE 1447 - LOW AC VOLTAGE (SHUTDOWN)

Reason:

One or more of the phase voltages has dropped below

the Low AC Voltage Threshold

for Low AC Voltage Delay seconds.

Effect:

Engine will shut down.

POSSIBLE CAUSE

CORRECTIVE ACTION

1. Fault simulation was 1. With a PC based service

tool, verify that the related fault simulation is

enabled with a PC based service tool.

not enabled.

If you do not have a PC based service tool, remove

battery power from

the control to disable fault simulation overrides.

2. Fault threshold is not set correctly with A PC based service

tool.

2. Reset the threshold to the lowest allowable setting. Determine the

required operating range before adjusting the threshold.

3. Overload.

3. Check the load and correct any over

load. Check operation by disconnecting load and restarting generator set.

4. Improper connections have been made at the

generator output terminals.

4. Reconnect according to the appropriate reconnection diagram.

See Section 17.

5. Voltage sense or setup wiring connection could be

incorrect.

5. Check that Voltage senses inputs P22-1 to 4 are

connected to the correct voltage sensing point at alternator.

6. The rotating rectifier

assembly (diodes CR1 through CR6) is faulty.

6. Check each diode. See genset service manual

7. Loose connector or

Base board is bad.

8. Repair connections (P22) or replace the Base board if necessary.

8. AVR or Alternator is

bad.

4. Refer to Alternator / AVR Board Isolation Procedure in Alternator

manual to determine if the AVR board is causing the Low AC voltage

shutdown fault.

9. Voltage sense connections/setup could be incorrect

See section 17 for proper connections
