Load Bank – It is a device which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and converts or dissipates the resultant power output of the source. The purpose of a load bank is to accurately mimic the operational or “real”load that a power source will see in actual application.
Operation and Monitoring – D.G testing is controlled and monitored by SCADA (Factory Talk View SE) and data process control and calculations are done by PAC (Compact logix) & PLC (Micrologix).
Process Description – D.G connected to load bank by checking correct connections of phases.
Then by SCADA data and values are updated according to model number, and load test is started by SCADA.
After the completion of load test report is generated for all steps as required by operator.
Report include following basic data:-
- KW Load
- AC Voltage
- HERTZ Frequency
- Oil Pressure
- Ampere Rating
- Voltage tested
- Additional by requirement
