I believe your Onan has a "No AC Output" shutdown switch that would shut it down as you describe.
With any luck, you may simply have to re-flash the generator to solve the problem.
If that doesn't work you'll want to check the circuitry on the generator for winding continuity, resistance through the brushes, etc. (I assume you have fixed the short circuit, of course, and checked breakers.)
Let us know what you find.

I think you are dealing with a couple of issues.
Since you had an electrical short did you check the master circuit breaker on the generator?
Is the fuel supply sufficient? Are you getting enough fuel from the electric pump? Is the fuel clean? The most common cause of a diesel engine shutting down once it has started is lack of fuel. Believe it or not, it is very hard to stop a running diesel engine.
