The bed has two test sections for two
gas-piston power plants and the following equipment:
- indoor switchgear and operator’s bench module (containerized);
- bench module for main switchboard and load banks (containerized);
- bench subframes for installation of power units to be tested;
- bench fuel gas system;
- power supply system for the bench.
The tested power plants are loaded by the bench air cooled load banks. Total power of the load banks is 2MW. In a single plant test, the plant can be taken to the rated load. With two plants tested simultaneously, each can be taken to a load of 1MW. The bench can be used to test concurrent operation of two plants with a common load. During testing, the plants are controlled from the bench automated process control system manufactured by
