When commissioning a substation, solar farm, wind farm,using the power grid to commission your utility facility can lead to many issues. For example:
- You will be unable to precisely control voltage, current and load parameters.
- You will have little control over scheduling a power grid test — Because of power demands, the grid operator may have to push out your test days, weeks or even months.
Using load banks for utility commissioning allows you to determine the exact profile voltage, current, and load.This commissioning strategy also creates a final schedule that eliminates uncertainties.
ComRent’s latest eBook will discuss the importance of using alternative testing methods for utility systems.
