The Saturn-HV Medium Voltage Outdoor Resistive Load Bank is ideal for medum voltage applications up to 3000kW and 15KVAC. It is a freestanding, skidded unit consisting of three principle sections:

  • #1: High Voltage Section consisting of main input power terminals, high voltage: 480V 3-phase power transformer, low voltage output terminals, and outputs to load cell.
  • #2: Low Voltage Resistive Load Bank Section consisting of one 480V 1500KW-3000KW forced air-cooled load cell.
  • #3: Control Section.


  • Load Capacity Options: Up to 1500, 1800, 2000, 2250, 2500, or 3000kW.
  • Voltage Options: Up to 15kVAC. Typically 2400, 3300, 4160, 13200, or 13800 VAC.
  • Load Step Resolution: Typically 50kW minimum.
  • Duty Cycle: Rated for continuous operation.
  • Controller: The Simplex D-Series Digital Controller is PLC-based, network capable, and comes with a local or remote color TFT touch-screen operator interface.
  • Control Power: Internal from load bus. Control circuits at 120V via transformer.
  • Cooling Power: Internal from load bus. Cooling fan operates at 3-phase line voltage.
  • Cooling: Ultra-high volume integral forced air cooling system; Air Temperature Rise limited to 150-200 F range; Water shedding exhaust hood; Vertical airflow - cold air intake at bottom, hot air exhaust at top.
  • Load Elements: Elements mounted in easily accessible, slide out trays; Simplex Powr-Web chromium alloy, open wire, continuously supported, power resistor; UL recognized.
  • Malfunction Protection: Sensors, alarms (alarm messages and exhaust temperature displays on touch-screen), lock-outs as appropriate, for the following: fan failure, high exhaust temperature and high intake temperature.
  • Load Circuit Protection: branch circuit fuses. One set of fuses each 50KW branch. Fuses are current limiting type, 200,000 AIC, 600V, enabling safe use on large generating or UPS system.
  • Load Connections: Connect to full rated copper bus bar with an oversized terminal junction box.
  • Enclosure: Type 3R weatherproof power section, including load elements and cooling fan; Type 3R weatherproof control section, thermally and electrically isolated from resistive load power section; Double wall construction for cool exterior; Exhaust hood; Service access from three sides via hinged doors with lockable latches; Enclosure abrasively blasted or chemically etched, primed and finished. Anti-condensation heaters at 120V 1ø, 240V 1ø, or any common 3ø voltage.
  • Transformer: Dry type; 1500-3000KVA, continuous duty; High voltage delta, 3-wire primary; 480V wy, 4-wire secondary with grounded neutral; 220°C insulation / 150°C rise.
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): Satisfies the requirements for emergency stand-by power systems.
