The 1 – 2 – 3’s of Load Bank Testing Your Utility

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

Here's why load bank testing is critical for the utility industry:

  1. Testing real-world extreme scenarios What's the worst thing that could happen to your diesel or gas turbine generators? Our proprietary load bank testing solutions enable you to hit an entire load in a black start test - a true simulation of the most extreme, real-world conditions your equipment could ever face - without risk to your power plant's critical systems.
  2. Commissioning gas turbines You purchase several gas turbines, but it's rare that the manufacturer offers commissioning services. And that's a responsibility you don't want. Comrent can help by providing the load needed for commissioning the gas turbine's generator as an integrated system, which gives you the opportunity to verify nameplate operational specifications for optimal performance. 
  3. Keep oversize generators at optimal performance Keeping generators at optimal performance is critically important to drilling platform operations and safety. When an oil industry client needed additional load to keep an oversize generator at the right temperature, Comrent was the only company with a load bank capable of sustaining the optimal amount of load.
