Inductive load banks

Inductive or inductive reactive load banks are used in conjunction with and daisy-chained to Froment resistive load banks for testing AC supplies at non unity power factors. Most gen-sets are rated at 0.8 power (or Cos Ø), although fully variable lagging power factor loading is possible. Based on a rugged, heavy duty welded monocoque construction capacities are available up to 1066kVAr.

Inductive load banks can be customised for a particular application. Three phase inductors are used that also allow single phase operation when necessary. The inductors are iron cored and continuously rated for both 50 and 60Hz operation at the maximum voltages specified. Froment inductors are specifed to cope with typical harmonic distortion found in gen-set and renewable energy sources.
