Generator Load Bank Testing
Load Testing of Generating Plant
Generally, a standby set should be checked weekly and run for a short period, preferably on load, to exercise both the engine/alternator and its control panel. All information and readings should then be recorded.
A common fault even when maintenance is carried out regularly is the engine injectors fouling due to excessive ‘light load’ running. In order to compensate for this, a load factor of 50% minimum loading should be considered although a full load factor would be more desirable, followed by 110% load for a short period.
This load factor ensures that the engine does not suffer from injectors being ‘clogged’ with carbon deposits due to unburnt fuel. Also, running on a light load could in time dilute the engine lubricating oil which may in turn result in further engine problems.
Powerpro’s Load Bank Testing Equipment
This is transported to the Customers Site and once installed, imposes a Constant or Variable Load on Generating Plant without Interrupting Electricity Supply. The generator will then be subjected to an Impact Load Test when cold in order to prove load acceptance capability. This is then followed by a generator run for a minimum 2 hour duration.
The purpose of this test is to prove the Output and Potential of the Generator whilst highlight potential problems that could occur during Emergency use. All of these tests prove beyond doubt that the Generator will meet Load Requirements when called upon. Once completed, a Load Bank Test Report submitted.
