Gen-set

we are having 500KVA caterpillar gen-set,  earlier we have a promblem with fuel pump and now we fixed that , but after that a new problem arises with the line voltage , when we start the generator , potentiometer measure the line voltage of 284v only , our AVR is working good, how to study and slove this problem ?
