The tests carried out with the help of loadbanks are considered to be the basis of good practices in terms of both: proper system commissioning and subsequent maintenance. The execution of tests under load allows to verify the correctness of installation and ensures reliable operation in case of the failure of the main power source.
Those are one of the most important tests for the facilities where
power is essential for proper operation. Companies which decide to undertake such tests are fully aware of the way proper power quality determines proper operation. The risk of production loss caused by the lack of proper power supply can be easily calculated.
Taking electrical measurements, we obtain information about technical condition of subsequently examined elements of equipment. A good technical condition of both operating devices and those just installed and being commissioned ensures safe work environment. Unfortunately, such measurements cannot confirm proper operation of an entire installation. We do not know whether the whole installation will withstand the load expected by us, whether switches and controls will work properly, whether chosen elements are suitable for full load or whether there are no loose connections in a system, which may overheat and cause fire. Such information is provided to us by tests under load.
Our philosophy of tests and maintenance is based on the early detection and fixing of flaws before they turn into serious problems and cause system failure or power loss in the whole facility or its part. Our company perfectly understands the meaning of these systems necessary for effective and efficient performance.
During tests the following things are verified: the correctness of design and power infrastructure construction in compliance with functional requirements, the correctness of implementation and operation of particular system elements, selective exclusion of individual systems (switch settings), the correctness of interoperability at full load and when the nominal power is exceeded.
BCA Group is a pioneer and also a leader in conducting independent infrastructure testing of critical data center infrastructure in Poland. We have executed a lot of successful projects for the biggest Polish companies. All our services are highly praised by customers. All of our clients admitted that conduction of tests has minimized the infrastructure operation risk and eliminated critical mistakes made at the stages of designing and whole investment execution.
