The objectives of this project were to determine the state of the art with respect to vibration standards for acceptance of diesel generating sets in Canada and to propose a vibration acceptance criterion for diesel generating sets for use by Canadian utilities. The project tasks consisted of a literature review and surveys of both users and manufacturers of diesel generating sets. Based on analysis of generating set vibration data supplied by users and additional input from them, a vibration acceptance criterion was proposed.
