Load Banks for Ground Power Units

Aircraft ground power units are usually operated with little load. The result: The diesel engine fouled and needs to be burned free with higher load (resistance). Therefore Load Banks are used.


The load banks are equipped with individually switchable resistors and therefore they are also suitable for smaller GPUs.

For burning usually 80% of the nominal power of a GPU is enough. As you cannot conduct more than 90kVA over a 400Hz output, the use of multiple load banks for stronger GPUs is recommended.

The load banks are very mobile and also for setting permanently installed equipment very suitable.
