FAQs About Resistive/Reactive Load Banks for Sale
How do resistive load banks work?
- Resistive load banks work by drawing power from a generator the way an appliance or light would. Resistive load banks then convert the applied electrical energy into heat, which is then dispelled through a cooling system.
How do reactive load banks work?
- Reactive load banks simulate inductive power draws to test systems that have a sensitivity to voltage dips. They are commonly used in commercial construction applications.
How long should you load bank a generator?
- Exact timing depends on the situation and the type of generator you have, but for routine testing you typically only have to run the generator and load bank for about 30 minutes.
