    Default Video of a 60 kW diesel generator being overload tested

    Thought I would post up a video of me conducting a typical load and overload test on one of my diesel generator sets. Gotta love hearing that turbo scream when I hit it with 120% load!

    Good job. Curious what you were using for a load bank.
    We just repacked both of our 12-645 EMD's (1.3 Mw ea.) and ran them in just like that.

    I have a 300kw resistive load bank that I cool with a 4' box fan. It was permanently installed on a generator to artificially load it. It works good for testing...

    This is what we used. 4 Mw resistive carbon pile. Very loud fans.
