Regenerative AC load bank slashes energy costs by 90 percent

July 07, 2015 // By Paul Buckley
Intepro Systems has introduced the PEL Regenerative AC Electronic Load Bank, which is built around a 60 kVA chassis and can be paralleled for higher power requirements, to return more than 90% of load test power to the utility grid.

The 60 kVA electronic load can simulate a wide range of test capabilities including load sequence transient generation, power factor and phase control.
 
The bank also accepts standard AC input ranges from 120 to 480 V and provides grid-synchronized, regenerated AC power output that returns 90% of the equipment under test (EUT) load power back to the utility. The PEL Series provides an energy-saving solution when testing any type of power used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, medical, battery and green energy.

The PEL Series features three modes of load settings: constant current, constant resistance and constant power. The bank also provides adjustable power factor from 0.3 to 1.0 to simulate a range of load conditions as well as independent phase control and a built-in measurement system. The PEL Series also offers load sequence transient generation for creating complex, variable and repeatable load conditions.

“Rising energy prices makes energy conservation a major concern for companies that are continually searching for ways to reduce costs,” said Gerard Sheehan, Intepro's Chief Technical Officer. “With its full range of test capabilities and its ability to regenerate 90% of load power to the utility grid, our new PEL Regenerative AC Electronic Load Bank sets new standards for loading power devices.”

Pricing starts at $51,975 (base price for Model PEL Series- 33060)
