LOAD BANKING

Delivering Innovative Power Generation Services since 2014

A load bank is a device which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and converts or dissipates the resultant power output of the source. A load bank includes load elements with protection, control, metering and accessory devices required for operation. Load banks can either be permanently installed at a facility and permanently connected to a power source or portable versions can be used for testing power sources such as standby generators and batteries. Load banks are the best way to replicate, prove and verify the real-life demands on critical power systems.

Load banks are used in a variety of applications, including:

  • Factory testing of turbines and engine diesel generator sets
  • Periodic exercising of stand-by engine generator sets
  • Battery and UPS system testing
  • Ground power testing
  • Load optimisation in prime power applications
  • Removal of carbon build-up on generator piston rings
  • Load rejection tests
  • Data centre┬átests (electricity and air-conditioning)
