  Trident 150KW-1250KW Load Bank Overview

Simplex Load Banks - Trident Stationary Load Bank

Very-high capacity load testing of generators or electric dynamometer testing of large engines and turbines is achieved with the Simplex Trident Load Bank. The unit capacity range of the Trident is 150KW-1250KW, resistive, unity power factor. The Trident may be used singly or in systems of multiple units which yield total capacities of tens or hundreds of megawatts. Pictured is a 2000KW system (two Tridents) with customer specified paint. Reactive units (inductive or capacitive) are also available.

The Trident is a single or dual voltage Load Bank suitable for all common 50-60-400 hertz voltages up to 600V.

  Trident 150KW-1250KW Load Bank Features

Simplex Trident load banks can be used to satisfy the requirements of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) for emergency stand-by power systems.
