Definition

The load bank is a kind of testing equipment, mainly for testing and maintaining generators, uninterruptible power supplies, and power transmission equipment. Its use avoids the economic loss caused by the failure of the standby unit or the power supply start-up, and also provides a scientific basis for the detection of the load capacity of the new unit. The fuel used by the generator set is diesel. When the load is less than 50% or no-load, a light load will inevitably result in insufficient fuel, carbon deposits, and reduced efficiency of the whole machine, which will eventually lead to starting failure, insufficient power, excessive fuel, and excessive fuel. Open the tank early for maintenance until it is scrapped. The use of a load bank can avoid the above situation and improve the reliability of diesel generator sets. The load bank equipment can provide effective testing and maintenance methods for the generator set, and verify the characteristics under all conditions without interrupting the very important actual load.


Classification

The load bank equipment can provide an effective means of test and maintenance for the generator set and verify the characteristics under all conditions without interrupting the very important actual load. The load bank is divided into a resistive load, resistance-capacitance integrated load, and resistance-capacitance inductance integrated load. The resistive load we use more often is called a dummy load. The function of the dummy load is to simulate the existence of a real load. The main component is the resistance part, and some meters and circuit breakers are added when designing. The load is usually made into a box, commonly known as a load bank.


Development

The load bank has been developed in my country for more than 10 years. The dry load bank is relatively advanced in the accuracy and control of test data. In the shipyard, the load bank with integrated resistance and induction is used more frequently, that is, the main accessories are resistors, reactors, and capacitors, so the price will be added accordingly. Adding reactors and capacitors is mainly to control the power factor, and this is also to calculate their input capacity according to the needs of users. The current load bank design is relatively automatic. One load bank is equipped with an operating table. The main accessory of the operating table is an industrial computer. The computer controls the loading and unloading and doing fluctuation experiments. Not only do data and curves display the parameters of the generator, but also Can automatically generate reports. The current load bank has a wide range of applications, including ships, energy, electricity, transportation, finance, offshore platforms, communication wind power, and solar power plants.
