Hi, Get yourself a few 10kw heat strips out of heat pump air handlers. They make a great and easy load bank. I use them to load and set output. A clamp on amp meter and volt meter will tell you what you need to know. CK

Thanks CK. I ran out of "Thanks" buttons for the day since the button no longer appears for any of the threads on this site. FWIW: I've been using electric stove top elements that I salvage from the appliance pile at our local town dump for free.

I've got a 10 kw hanging 440 V box heater that I rewired to 6kw 240 v , was going to my heat garage.
But easier to use a few hairdriers to get me to 7kw.
