Uses of Load Banks in Data Centers

Load banks are used throughout a data center facility from commissioning all the way through to expansion. Use the hot spots below to find out where and why load banks are essential.

Back Up Diesel Generators
  • Ensure back-up power supply will work in the event of a power shortage
  • Commission and verify the nameplate power rating
  • Regular load bank maintenance will keep the generator in optimal operating condition
  • Load banks will identify any potential back-up power issues that may lead to power outages
Uninterruptible Power Supply
  • Fully load the batteries to simulate real-life conditions and identify potential weaknesses
  • Validate the electrical system to avoid costly outages
  • A low cost method of determining battery autonomy
  • Test and maintain UPS's as part of a maintenance schedule
Remote Power Panels
  • Commission RPP's to ensure correct operation for real world conditions
  • Ensure power distribution efficiency and uptime
  • Validate RPP metering
Power Distribution Units
  • Commission PDU's to ensure correct operation for real world conditions
  • Ensure power distribution efficiency and uptime
  • Validate the PDU bus bar system and monitor temperature changes
Bus Tracks
  • Ensure temperature rise of bus bars remains within limit with specific electrical loads
  • Validate the power tap offs and feed tracks
Server Racks
  • Verify and validate efficient power distribution to all server components
  • Simulate server heat production to verify data center HVAC systems
  • Ensure data center power and temperature conditions are optimal before installing costly servers
