Main purpose of UPS (Uninterruptable Power System) is to provide power back up for few seconds to few hrs, when the power goes off from the grid. UPS system cannot support the heavy loads for cooling or motors. UPS is used for short term requirements and testing battery capacity for holding charges is important. These are also used to give power to various connected loads that are again connected by inverter. The main work for the UPS is to enable the main supply of voltage. They also work to break the supply and provide their own power saved in the UPS. These machine fits between back up power system and computer system they protect. Abrupt shut down causes data loss and other major system problems in computer system so UPS is essential for its consistency. UPS load Bank Test ensures your UPS works seamlessly and efficiently to its full potential when required.
Load Bank Testing
Load Bank Testing validates optimal operational system of UPS and its batteries. Testing allows evaluating the system without putting the protected equipment to risk. Lead acid batteries are most common in UPS system used in office, home, data centers and other commercial and industrial applications. These batteries have short lives and will be shorten further without proper monitoring and maintenance system. Load bank test proves the capacity of the UPS batteries. Any shortfall in capacity is identified and rectified immediately. Load bank testing is an integral part of UPS maintenance system as it is a practical way of assessing the whole system.
Most generating sets are designed and specified at 0.8 power factor. It means a 500KW generator set can produce power up to 400KW in resistive load. During Resistive Load Bank Testing for Generator you can stimulate the environment realistically. This test lets you know if there is any weakness in the system. Without this level of testing you will not get the data that you need for system reliability. The purpose of load testing of generators is to achieve the rated power.
The test will reach following target steady state loading ability, transient state loading ability, generator setting test by PC software, generator fluctuation test by PC software, load profile generator load bank test. There are backup generators that are not given to carry heavy loads each day. These machines therefore do not reach their capacity each day. In cases of such generators, you need to test them each day as a preventive method – part of the maintenance. This will help you uncover any problems and avoid costly repair of your generators.
Advantage of backup generators
Natural disaster like tournedos, hurricane can disrupt power for many days. A backup or home generator could solve this problem until and unless power is restored. Standby generators are designed in such fashion they turn on automatically when power goes off. Generators are available in wide range of sizes from portable units to large ones which can power entire home electrical loads. These generators are used at home to give power to the home appliances – when there is a failure of power for any reason. Testing of the UPS and generators give you confidence that your back up system is working perfectly and you can go about using the machine system to complete your work without stress.
