Benefits and economics of Load Testing: Discussion of the cost of power failures, power quality issues, the importance of availability and reliability and, finally review an economic model of user benefits
Industry Trends: Review significant trends that will affect many facilities and industries, including:
IEEE Standards for Interconnection (IEEE 1547 Interconnection Series, IEEE Smart Grid interoperability Series, and UL 1741 and 6171 series on Wind Interconnection.)
Recent FERC Small Generator Interconnection notice of proposed rulemaking.

Innovations in Load Testing: We will discuss current and upcoming innovation in facility load testing, including:
Data Center Commissioning using multiple load bank types to test many aspects of power system and power quality.? ? Comprehensive testing also balances the thermal performance with electrical.
Medium Voltage Load Banks are used to provide a simpler safer approach to load testing at large facilities or a Utility substation
Application Specific Load Banks used to speed up setup and provide a safer layout of power system elements along with the testing equipment.
Interactive Load Banks are a new innovation that allows reactive control or communication based system to control load based on set conditions in the application (Mobile Generator or wind farm example)
Liquid Cooled Load Banks are emerging to provide very high power density loads and tie in to liquid cooling systems that are increasingly being used in High Performance Computing application.
Lessons Learned/Summary and Conclusion: Finally, we will summarize how organizations can take advantage of this important practice and improve availability, reliability and reduce incidence of business interruptions.? ? Mark is looking forward to meeting with and discussing the topic with this important audience.
