It is crucial that standby generators and UPS systems are load tested on a regular basis, to ensure the customer’s disaster recovery plan is fit for purpose and if needed, that the standby generator and UPS system can withstand the power requirements if a failure occurs.
Standby generators that are only run on a light load can give a false impression of capability and may be unable to run a heavy load due to a build-up of engine fuel deposits, resulting in a reduction in generator output in an emergency situation. It is essential therefore, that generators and UPS systems are load tested on a sufficient load, based on the specified output required.
We supply a mobile load bank, which is brought on site to allow the generator or UPS to be load tested in a safe and controlled environment. We performance test the generator and UPS system over a range of loads, over a period of time, monitoring performance before finally testing the overload capacity. Once the readings are recorded, we will supply the customer with an assessment and a report of the load testing results and any maintenance work required.
We recommend generators and UPS systems are load tested at least once a year to ensure the generators and UPS are fit for purpose when needed for an emergency.
