How do capacitive load banks differ from resistive or inductive load banks?

Unlike resistive loads, purely inductive loads have maximum, minimum and zero points that are not in phase with one another. Similar to an inductive load, a capacitive load generates both voltage and current waves.

How do I determine what size reactive load bank I need?

Choose a load bank with a capacity equal to or greater than the output of the power source you are testing. This allows you to test power sources at their maximum operating output.

Can I use multiple rack-mounted load banks simultaneously for large-scale testing?

Yes, rack-mounted load banks can be networked together for high-capacity equipment and monitored from one remote controller.
