Load Bank Testing For Utility Substations

A safer, more efficient, and

accurate load testing process

Why You Need ComRent

When a substation is built, many times it can’t be put into service for long periods of time because the network or facility it is intended to service is not ready to take power. This causes delays which may mask problems until the facility is fully energized. Load testing gives you the opportunity to uncover potential problems with your substation equipment and improve system reliability to ensure your customers and facility have consistent power. With the grid, fluctuations are common, making it nearly impossible to control critical power parameters such as voltage, current, and load. Load banks offer repeatable measurement parameters, allowing for faster and more accurate testing that can result in less labor and lower costs.

 

Avoid Service Interruptions and Improve Performance

Our proprietary load banks are specifically designed for substation commissioning and provide a constant, sustainable, and controllable load to help you determine what works, identify issues, and fix problems before bringing the facility online.

Available Inventory

Testing with a grid connection requires prior approval and scheduling from the electric utility. Load banks allow you to avoid extended lead times and shorten testing time. Our extensive inventory is rapidly deployed, letting you conduct your test on your schedule.

Accurate Testing

Using resistive and reactive load bank solutions, you can accurately test substation equipment functionality including the delivery, protection mechanisms, monitoring devices, metering, and PLC/HMI programming. Our technicians manage your entire load test from setup to tear down, ensuring accurate results.

Consultative Planning

From incorrect programing to workmanship error and tripping breakers, there are many elements that can affect the reliability of your substation. Since every facility is different, our experienced team learns about your substation and builds a testing plan customized to your facility.

Full-Service

Regardless of the complexity or requirements of your project, we provide solutions to your challenges. When you partner with us, you will have access to an expert technician every step of the way from planning, set-up, troubleshooting, testing, and tear-down.
