Load testing is a key part of the testing and commissioning process. It involves running the generator at full power for a period of time to see how it performs under stress. It can help to identify any potential issues with the generator’s components or operation. In addition, load testing can also help to improve the generator’s overall efficiency.
Other testing methods can be employed where relevant. These include no-load testing, which tests the generator’s performance while it is not under any load, and efficiency testing, which measures the generator’s output relative to its fuel consumption. By understanding these different types of generator testing, you can ensure that your generator is always operating at its best. Read more about load bank testing.
