Diesel Generator Load Bank Testing Equipment UK

Load bank testing ensures that your generator and UPS will power through the highest load conditions.

What is load bank testing?

Load bank testing is a process that is used to test the performance of generators and other electrical equipment. The test involves applying a load to the equipment and then monitoring how well it operates. This helps to ensure that the equipment is able to handle the demands of a real-world situation. It is an important part of maintaining and troubleshooting your power generation equipment. It can help to identify potential problems before they cause downtime or damage. WBPS provide both the testing equipment and the expertise to carry out the testing on your premises.

Why is load bank testing required?

Load bank testing is a way to ensure that your power generator is able to function properly. The test involves using a load bank, which is a device that simulates a real-world load on the generator. This load allows the generator to be tested under conditions that are close to its actual operating conditions.

It allows for the detection of any problems with the generator before it is put into service. This type of testing can also be used to verify the performance of the generator after it has been serviced or repaired. In short, load bank testing is a crucial part of maintaining a power generator.

At WBPS we have developed a range of load bank testing services to meet all needs in a variety of industries and sectors. Here are just a few examples of how we can help.

Healthcare

Prince Charles Hospital

Load bank testing is an essential part of maintaining a hospital’s power supply. The power needs of healthcare facilities such as hospitals can vary widely from day to day and hour to hour. By testing the capacity of the hospital’s electrical system, we can ensure that the system can handle peak demand periods.

In addition, it helps identify any potential weaknesses in the system, such as overloaded circuits or faulty wiring. By addressing these problems before they cause a power outage, we can help to keep the hospital’s power supply reliable and safe.

Hospitals cannot afford to lose power, even for a few minutes. Load bank testing helps to ensure that hospitals can keep the lights on and provide continuity of care during even the most challenging circumstances.

Education

WBPS has long been involved in power provision to educational establishments including colligates and universities.

Load bank testing is needed in education for a few key reasons. First, load bank testing helps to ensure that the power grid can handle the increased demand that comes with having a large number of students on campus.

Second, it helps to ensure that your backup power systems are working properly. Lastly, it helps to identify any potential problems with the power system before they cause significant disruption. By load testing the power system on a regular basis, universities and colleges can avoid power outages and other disruptions that can negatively impact the learning environment.
