This paper covers the design criteria for Diesel-Generators for Nuclear Power Plants. It deals with applicable standards, loading, design performance, and characteristics to be considered in the selection of diesel-generator set and its auxiliary system. This paper also discusses engineered safety features loads together with loss of power safe shutdown loads and their starting sequence, analysis of voltage and frequency response and the diesel-generator ability to start various load blocks successfully to meet the Reactor Emergency core cooling requirements.
