How do you normally go about load testing Caterpillar Generators?
I make up a bit and connect it to the TDS and pump through it to create back pressure in turn putting a load on the generators. This is much better than circulating through a choke. With four generators online I can pump 900 gpm and create 3800 psi. This is the part that I don't fully understand? I can see a percentage of load on the generators and can see the KVA for each generator. What if one is running a little slower than the other, is it best to have a CAT technician to adjust it, or is it something the Electrician or mechanic can do? What are the limits for one to be faster or slower than the others?
As you can guess I'm just an old roughneck in a new world high tech equipment (Although SCR and VFD is common now)and it's my job as a companyman to accept a rig for drilling or not. Any advice would be greatly accepted.
