What is a load bank?
A load bank is a device where it draws power in order to simulate a load for the power supply. They are used in order to test their power supply or batteries condition by providing a load on it in order to simulate real life conditions.
There are 5 main types of Load Banks. However, we would only be talking about the most common type of load banks available.
The most commonly found one is the resistive load bank. The resistive load bank uses electrical energy that passes through grid resistors and converts it to heat energy. This type of load bank would be suitable for testing lighting and heating loads as it best represents changing electrical energy to light energy and heat energy.
The other types of load banks includes inductive load bank, capacitive load bank, resistive reactive load bank and electronic load bank. They too provide electrical load onto the system, however, different types comes with different load and would provide different replica of real-life demands. Thus, would have different application depending on what the end goal is.
What Do You Know About Load Bank ?
Load banks are usually resistive heaters that are joined together to create load for electricity that passes through it. Here in genset Malaysia, we provide rental and sale of Load Banks so that you are able to test your electricity capability at a particular building or generator.
These kind of load banks are suitable to be used at construction sites, commercial buildings and oil & gas applications. Load banks start from 100kW
Load banks are usually made of heaters joined in series to create tremendous resistance to current, hence it is an effective way to measure the load capability of a generator. Our generators are load tested before delivered to you and now you can do the load testing yourself by owning one of these.
