MIL-HDBK-705 Revision C, May 29, 1987
GENERATOR SETS, ELECTRICAL MEASUREMENT AND INSTRUMENTATION METHODS
Includes all amendments and changes through Validation Notice 1, November 3, 1992
This handbook covers two series of methods for measuring and determining characteristics of all electric generators and generator sets as classified by MIL-STD-1332, and associated equipment. The illustration and description of the test instruments together with instruction for their use are included as applicable under each method. As noted in the foreword of this handbook, some of the older types of instruments are no longer manufactured.
Text herein is identified in accordance with MIL-STD-962 and the sample formats shown therein. Method and method figure numbering is additionally significant as follows:
These methods pertain to basic instruments and measurements.
These methods pertain to basic instrumentation procedures and applications.
Lower case alphabetic characters are suffixed to the method numbers to identify revisions to methods.
The beginning digits of any figure number are the same as the method number that figure pertains to. A hyphen is used to separate the first and second portions of the figure numbers. The digits used in the second portions of figure numbers establish the order of figures within each method; where groups of alternate or multi-page figures occur, such as when depicting several types or manufacturers' models of instruments used for the same purpose, the second portion of the figure number is suffixed with a decimal on each of the second and subsequent figures involved. The decimals establish the order of the subsequent figures within that group.
Certain of the figures depict multi-purpose instruments; therefore there are several instances where the pictorial content of figures is identical, and is used twice or more, but the figure numbers and titles differ, depending upon the category or method where the figure occurs.
