What are loadbanks?

Loadbanks, manufactured by Crestchic Limited, provide a means to commission, test and service all types of power sources, including generators, turbines, batteries and fuel cells.

They do this by providing an electrical load which can be controlled remotely and simulate demand in real operating conditions.

Loadbanks can provide a variable resistive load (kW), a resistive/reactive load (kVA) at a variable of fixed power factor or a DC load for the discharge of batteries.

Crestchic's loadbanks vary in size from 30kW to 6000kVA and are designed to operate at 3 phase, 50 or 60Hz. The larger units are containerised and transportable. Being modular, they can be linked together to provide loads of 50MVA and above. Normally the loads operate at 380 volts to 480 volts 50/60Hz.

To accommodate higher voltages Crestchic can supply transformers to step down the test supply to suit the loadbanks.
