Generator Full Load Testing

What is Generator Full Load Testing?

A generator full load test procedure is an essential piece of the comprehensive GenCare preventative generator maintenance plan. Generator load testing verifies that all primary components of the generator are set and are in proper working condition.

As per the Ontario Fire Code an annual two-hour full load test is mandatory on all life safety generators. Generator load testing is beneficial as it verifies if a generator can operate at its maximum designed capacity and to ensure it’s compliant with code.

GenCare's Generator Full Load Testing Services

For a generator full load test procedure, GenCare brings load bank equipment and cables to your site. Your generator is connected to the load bank and is tested using a resistive load.

Your generator is then tested for the following:

  • Voltage
  • Amperage
  • Frequency
  • Component temperatures
  • Exhaust temperatures

When performing a generator full load test, GenCare looks at voltage, amperage and frequency and monitors exhaust temperatures for clearances and burn hazards. In addition, various component templates are monitored and recorded during this test.

We don't just talk about care.

We generate it.

Benefits of Generator Full Load Testing

The biggest benefit to a generator full load testing procedure is peace of mind. It’s better to have components of your generator fail during your two-hour full load test rather than during an emergency. Other benefits of generator load testing include:

  • Uncovering complications early to reduce expenses down the road
  • Avoiding major issues from arising
  • Radiator efficiency
  • Providing assurance that your generator will function when needed most
  • Verifying the engine cooling systems will perform optimally
