Default Transformer Current Testing

Ive been wondering how I could test my transformer to see if it can really supply the 150v 0.1A it is suppose to. If I supplied a resistance of 1540 Ohms & checked the voltage across the resistance, and the voltage was still 150V, then it would be supplying the 0.1A @150V.

Does that make sense?

How could I safely create 1540 ohms of resistance?

Buy a 1k5 20W wirewound resistor. Keep a check on transformer temperature.
