What is Load Bank Testing?

2020-06-29 Author:Jeff

Load bank testing places a controlled variable load onto the generator to determine whether it is able to generate its rated power. Standby generators are usually tested by running them either off load or partially on load, however this will not be at the full load of the generator. The load bank allows the generator to be taken to full load thereby testing its capability to generate its rated power. This gives assurance that in a real mains power loss situation the generator will perform regardless of the power demands placed upon it. Our Load Bank Hire service ensures your generator is ready for duty!
