b. In-Vessel Testing (Hull numbers 8500 thru 8519
and 8520 thru 8539). The following test procedures may
be performed to determine the condition of the alternator
The electrical system (1-3 and 1-4 )includes two 70-amp,

24-volt alternators, one alternator mounted on the
inboard engine of each propulsion unit. Four 6-volt
batteries, connected in series to provide 24-volt current,
are contained in the battery box located aft in the engine
room. The alternators and batteries provided electrical

a. Description. One 70-amp, 24-volt alternator is
output lead from alternator while the alternator is
belt driven from the inboard engine crank-shaft pulley.
The electrical circuit of the alternator uses six silicon
diodes in a full wave rectifier circuit. Since the diodes will
(1) Check voltage across auxiliary terminal
(fig. 4-41.1) and negative output terminal with dc
pass current from the alternator to the battery or load but
will not pass current from the battery to the alternator, the

exceeds this value, the isolation diode is defective (fig.
voltage regulator is the only control required.
(2) Place jumper wire across oil pressure
switch on propulsion unit to short out switch. Check
voltage across auxiliary terminal (fig. 4-41.1) and
negative output terminal with dc voltmeter. Correct
