Load Bank Testing

A load bank is a device that accepts and dissipates power, in order that equipment producing power can be tested under load, or to prevent damage from underloading.

Load banks are commonly used for:

  • Testing and commissioning of generators, turbines, batteries and UPS systems
  • Exercise of stand-by generators
  • Load optimisation
  • Avoiding underloading of generators/turbines
  • Carbon deposit cleaning
  • Load rejection testing

Edge Technology can provide load banking services up to 1,800kW (1.8MW) of load, which can be controlled to simulate any load pattern. We arrange any required surveying and logistics, and all connection and testing is done by our qualified engineers. We provide a comprehensive report about performance, and advice in the event of any faults.
