Load Absorption Systems

Fully Loaded MDS has leveraged its controls background to develop an extensive inventory of innovative load absorption solutions for aviation, industrial, and marine gas turbine engine testing. The MDS product catalogue includes engine load absorption systems specifically designed for gas turbine engine test facilities. Our expertise covers both the use of hydraulic dynamometers and the use of electrical generators with resistive load banks or options for full or partial connection to grid.

Reduce Risk in the Field, Test in House

MDS’ advanced engine loading systems have been developed to simulate the most complex load simulation applications, such as:

  • Constant Speed (Power Generation);
  • Variable Speed (Marine and Mechanical Drive);
  • Constant Torque (Pumping); and
  • Load Profile Matching.

Features include:

  • Quick response to input functions
  • Accurate load control
  • Stepless loading
  • Full load shed capability
  • 50Hz and 60Hz operation
  • Power regulation from 20-110%
  • Intuitive graphical user interfaces
