The Avtron model LCV load bank is designed to provide high capacity resistive and reactive loading in a single containerized unit. This allows testing of AC power systems at less than unity power factor, typically 0.8 p.f. lagging. To achieve a 0.8 power factor, the LCV combines resistive load (KW) with reactive load (KVAR). This combination provides a true test of actual generator or UPS nameplate rating (KVA) and simulates a "real world" load.
The LCV load bank provides high capacity loading of AC power systems such as diesel generator sets, turbines, or Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS). The load bank consists of a rugged ISO style 20 foot container housing the resistive and reactive components, blowers, associated controls and interconnections. The unit has a load capacity ratings of 3750-6250 KVA at 480 VAC, 3 phase, 60 Hz. (Other voltages and frequencies are available - consult factory.) The unit is PLC controlled with a convenient hand-held remote controller. Laptop computer control with data logging is also available as an option.
