A load bank applies an electrical load to the power source and dissipates the resulting electrical energy through resistive elements as heat. In the particular case of diesel generators’ performance testing, load banks function as highly effective approaches. As known to all, diesel generators have always been employed as the independent power source in the micro-grid systems for the agricultural and industrial projects at regional areas. In these circumstances, Top Rail Group researched and deployed a series of load bank products, ranging from 100kW till 1000kW testing ability. Experiencing extreme testing conditions before launches, our products have been rigidly verified with an amount of outstanding features, including high-level power supply reliability, load step control, temperature monitoring&control, rail industrial class components, transport convenience, etc. At the current stage, 100kW and 500kW models are already being in stock, ready to go. Other models can also be available right in succession.
Resistive Load Bank
Resistive load bank is a device which can simulate the real-life resistive loads and provides a rigorous test regime for power supplies from 1kW to 60MW. The “load” of a resistive load bank is created by the conversion of electrical energy to heat by power resistors. It mainly used to test and maintenance of Engine Generators, Storage Battery Systems, UPS Systems, Inverters, Ground Power Units, Auxiliary Power Units, Aircraft Power Generators, Wind Generators, Hydro Generators etc.
Resistive load bank are available in stationary type for permanent installation or portable type with lifting rings, castors. Larger load banks, typically above 1700KW, are based on an ISO container construction. Special finishes including custom paint colors and stainless steel casings can be supplied.
