Lubricating Oil Systems for Safety-Related Emergency Diesel Generators
|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
This standard provides functional, performance, and design requirements for lubricating oil systems for diesel genarartors that provide emergency onsite power for light water reactor nuclear power plants. The standard adresses all mechanical equipment associated with the lubricating oil system, with the exception of engine mounted components. These components, which are mounted directly to engine structure itself, are excluded, except to define interface requirements. This standard also includes the lubricating oil system instrumentation and control functional requirements. It excludes motors, motor control centers, switchgear, cables, and other electrical equipment used in the operation of the lubricating oil system, except to define interface requirements.
Purpose. The purpose of this standard is to define those features of lubricating col systems required to ensure an adequate supply to emergency diesel generators, and to provide performance and design criteria that ensure sufficient lubricating oil is available under all plant conditions.
