When power from the local grid isn't available, generators step in. What does a generator do? Most generators use a fuel supply, such as diesel, gasoline or natural gas, to provide electrical energy. They provide backup power in case of blackouts and can serve as a power source in areas where electric service isn't available. You can use them to power everything from single devices to the electrical systems of entire buildings.

what is generator load bank testing and how is it done

If you own or operate a generator, you must understand the importance of load bank testing to ensure the performance of your power supply. Using a load bank enables you to see how well your generator performs under typical operating conditions. Without regular testing, you won't know if your generator will be ready the next time you need it for backup power. Find out more about testing a generator using a load bank to get the most from your power supply.

Load banks come in many different forms based on the load they apply to the power sources they test. Resistive and reactive load banks are two primary forms. Each of these has its benefits for specific situations. Understand the differences between resistive and reactive load banks to find the best options for running tests on your power sources.
