A load bank is an essential piece of machinery if you need to simulate an electrical load. A dummy load bank is a piece of test equipment that tests a power source. They can be connected to power sources, like electrical power generators, at the output in order to test and calibrate the voltage. It then takes in the current from the generator and attributes it seemingly the same way the average load would, to gauge a proper approximation of efficiency. When power should be consumed, a load bank will take it over, usually in the form of heat. A load bank will show you if your generator is up to the task of powering the load that you need it to.
If you find your power varies and your generator is mostly light loaded, a load bank can be useful. A load bank will take in the extra power and shed it, usually in the form of heat. The machine is well equipped to do this with air- or water-cooling systems in place. Usually, a load bank will come equipped with overload protection so that you don’t need to worry about taking in too much power at one time.
TYPES OF LOAD BANKS
PowerLink supplies resistive load banks which is the most popular type. A resistive load bank can provide equivalent loading for diesel generators when testing load capacity. An inductive load bank is used for inductive or lagging loads. Capacitive load banks simulate non-linear loads that are common in specific industries. It’s essential to understand your use and needs before you embark on the journey of selecting a load bank for your project.

I have always trusted with PowerLink, because my power generation projects can be completely handed over to them. From every detail of the product, you can feel that they are very professional. The service team is quick to respond to problems, and they are experienced.
I like the diesel generator sets of PowerLink. What I recognise is the product quality. The stable operation of each unit in the project I've invested in makes my investment return more predictable. What I also recognise is the enterprise's values and the fact that they make every electric power product well.
Service is very important to me and PowerLink's service network is outstanding. Our natural gas to power projects, from the purchase of units, to the installation, commissioning, after-sales service and trusteeship, are all handed over to PowerLink. They are highly professional and I give them five-stars.
