The loading calculation is one of the key technologies for the emergency diesel generator which plays an important role in nuclear power. For the purpose of analyzing the process of loading, this chapter has established a simulation model of the emergency diesel generator based on MATLAB/Simulink, which may accurately reflect the mechanical and electromagnetic coupling process and the nature of the strong coupling and nonlinearity. The author simulates the loading process of the emergency diesel generator with the simulation results showing that the model is correct and reasonable; in the meanwhile, a theoretical guidance for the capacity choices of the emergency diesel generator is provided.
