I have done much searching on the web but have not been able to find a specification on the minimum recomended load for this 800kW genset.....I do know that 30% is the generally specified minimum load for diesel generators in general but have been unable to find a reference to verify if that applies to this set. The set has had problems with lube oil fuel dilution and I suspect that was caused at least in part by running on a very light load (about 20%) in the past...

Perhaps the service manual then. Also, ask your local dealer to get the rating definitions from TMI for your serial #, sometimes TMI has the rating definitions with the load parameters that may assist you.

Thanks much, I will check with the dealer, have not been able to find a spec anywhere.. FWIW there is a thread in the genearator operations forum with the same question, that poster has been unable to find a spec either....but if I do get an answer I'll post both places
