The recommended way to ensure your generator is ready when you need it and Regency provide load bank testing for any generator in the UK.
Load bank testing involves connecting the generator to a dummy load and running the unit at its full rating to prove it is cable to do the job and identify any issues before it lets you down.
Many customers make load bank testing a regular part of the maintenance plan, maybe tying it into a service contract or at other regular intervals.
Load banks can also be part of a repair - if your generator has been run at low load it can cause problems which build over time, leading to poor performance and failure. A good run on a load bank can in many cases correct the problem because it leads to major maintenance being required.
