A new study carried out by Aachen University has found that 5G mobile communications will drastically increase the demand for energy at data centres. This increased demand. argues Paul Brickman from Crestchic load banks, puts additional pressure on data centre...
WHY USE A LOAD BANK?
Load banks are primarily used for testing electrical power output on diesel generators, gas turbines and UPS systems whilst carrying out commissioning and maintenance work.
The load banks are used for simulating real electrical loads enabling essential setup and commissioning which ensures that all electrical and control parameters are met prior to power generation/back up equipment being energized on line.
