The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the four stroke multi-cylinder diesel engine coupling generator system for torsional vibration. In this work the modified Holzer method is used for free and forced vibration analysis of mass-elastic system and to determine the natural frequencies of torsional vibration of a multi-cylinder inline diesel engine generator set. The natural frequency of a system is important as it is the main cause of various types of failures. The high level harmonic forcing torque developed in engine can produce large torsional stress levels resulting in early fatigue failure in crankshaft. Therefore by knowing...
