Military MEP 113A 15kW 400Hz Generator GPU Ground Power Unit Diesel D1 - $2995 (Christiansburg)
MEP 113A 15kW 400Hz Diesel Generator/GPU
For sale is this used MEP 113A 15kW 400Hz Diesel Generator/GPU. This unit is actually a Ground Power Unit for jet aircraft. It is an older military generator that has been taken out of service. From looking at the unit, I don't think it was every put into service. It has normal light scuffs, scratches and some surface rust as a normal piece of older equipment. See photos below for more details on physical condition.

When we purchased the generator it only had 3 hours on it. We have put about another 1.5 hours on it during testing. When purchased, the engine had been in storage with all fluids drained. So it has two new fuel filters and a new change of oil. It has the housing hooked up, but does not currently have an oil filter installed. We poured a few gallons into the 10 gallon fuel tank and were able to run it on that.
Unit cranks well (batteries not included) and starts right up. Shows good oil pressure (45psi) and DC battery charging current while running. The unit also gives good output frequency and voltage from the generator based on the gauge and verified from a multimeter. I was able to vary the frequency from 396Hz to well over 412Hz. Very occasionally sometimes the frequency gauge would jump around, and then go back to normal. The voltages varied as stated above in the list, as I adjusted the voltage knob.
The circuit breaker closes properly to output voltage, but the status light doesn't work. It outputted voltage on the outlets on the front of the generator properly. The panel light works properly. The engine did smoke slightly on acceleration, my mechanic stated this could be because the engine likely isn't fully broken in yet. The fuel gauge also always shows empty. We ran the unit for about 1 hour and the unit heated up to 160F without a load on it. Will be sold as-is beyond our basic testing. Feel free to ask any questions and thanks for bidding.
