Swift and Successful Load Bank Testing Enables On-Time and On-Budget Light Rail System

Comrent is providing solutions for mission-critical power testing infrastructure.

Not all tests are planned. During construction of a light rail system from the remote airport to the major metropolitan area of Denver, CO, it was determined that surge protection needed to be confirmed. The combined urgency finding an electrical testing solution and the relatively uncommon load bank application created a challenge. Winter weather conditions further complicated the project. Also, there were multiple companies involved in the project including the rail operator, developer, and electric utilities, including Denver Transit Partners, DTC/RTD and Xcel Energy Utility Holding Co. The client required a custom load bank testing solution to test the 27.5KV single phase electrical system.

The parties hired Comrent the world leader in load bank solutions. Comrent quickly configured an electrical testing solution for 27kV single phase using weather-resistant, high voltage equipment. Due to the time-sensitive nature of the project, it was essential to enable the developer to safely operate the resistive, single phase load bank equipment in any weather to stay on schedule.

Comrent delivered the specially designed load bank testing package on time and enabled a successful test of the light rail system. Even though this project required an uncommon electrical testing solution, the team delivered while utilizing environmental protective measures to safely perform around a high voltage substation environment. The world-class Comrent onsite customer support team engaged with the multiple partners in a strategic, quick and productive way to find and execute the successful solution. The extended project team produced the required load bank testing solution and kept the light rail project on schedule and within budget.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
