Engine / Generator sets, or generators, are often a big investment and are a major asset for large and medium-sized businesses. Their failures following a sudden incursion are often accompanied by actual or potential hazards, or financial losses associated with storms, sudden drops in network voltages, or other disasters. Periodic maintenance and testing ensure that each power supply system will run smoothly whenever needed.
A comprehensive preventive maintenance program is crucial to the proper and long-term operation of reserve generators, and load testing is the basis of good maintenance practices. Performing annual load test helps to prolong engine generator life and ensure reliable operation when main power fails.
