Back in my military hospital days, we did both regular load tests,  
using a LARGE resistive loads we flowed water through to cool (4" feed
pipe) as well did actual swapovers (on weekends).

Never seen it done that way since, when we bought our current generator
system the company that installed it thought I was crazy for even asking
about a test load. 

We do do a full swapover every few months... --Mike--
