Load Bank Testing

A Load Bank test will provide timely identification of any problems with your generator and the remedial actions necessary.

Do you rely on your generator as part of a Critical Power System?
If you do, then a periodic load bank test is essential to ensure that it will run smoothly and efficiently when you need it. Why? Because just starting up your generator every now and again is not enough.
Imagine just starting up a car and not driving it. Would you be confident it would perform for 500 miles? No? So why assume a generator will from a simple auto start test? Full resistive Load Bank testing will push the unit to its limits so you can be sure it will work efficiently when you need it.

What does a Load Bank Test?

  • The engine and its ability to provide the required power over time by using an artificial load
  • The alternator's ability to provide the required voltage stability
  • Frequency stability
  • Efficient control systems under varying conditions of load
  • The performance of whole system
  • Oil and fuel pressure to make sure the engine is well lubricated and gets enough fuel to produce the power you need it to provide

What else will a Load Bank test provide?

  • Remove deposits from pistons, engine casings & exhausts
  • Identify potential weaknesses
  • Record results and remedial work to be done

Full testing of the generator under load will ensure that all the components within the system will work and perform together as intended when called upon to support a critical load.
