What is load bank for generators testing?
Required by law in some regions, generator load bank testing puts your generator and energy system to the test at a variety of different electrical loads. A generator load bank test is an effective way to see how your system performs in a range of day-to-day and challenging scenarios, so you can get ahead of issues before they become major problems.
What is the difference between resistive and reactive load banks?
Load banks can be reactive or resistive, matching the power draw of your planned applications. For example, resistive load banks are well suited to testing energy sources for lights and heaters, while reactive load banks are more appropriate for energy that powers motors. Working with Aggreko, get a capable team to guide you through the right choice for your environment and test plan.
What is power factor testing?
Power factor testing is designed to assess real-world power factors against expected performance. At the most basic level, this gives you insight into potential issues, from degrading insulation to wetness. In this way, comprehensive electrical load bank testing alerts you to maintenance issues earlier, so you can take a proactive approach and keep up and running.
