Air Isolation of a Diesel Generator

To lower the vibration transmitted from a 170 KVA diesel generators onboard a super yacht, to the hull (and thus the living quarters) of the boat, it was decided to soft mount that diesel-generator by changing its conventional (elastomeric) mounts to air mounts. The attachment of the exhaust pipe to the engine, as well as […]

One-Order Tuned Vibration Absorption of a Diesel-Generator

In four stroke engines, including diesel engines driving generators, each cylinder fires every other revolution. This causes the engine vibration to occur at ½ the engine RPM, called the ½ order vibration, and its higher order harmonics namely 1 order, 1½ order, 2 order. In the case of a diesel generator, in addition to the […]
