You need a directory authority to vote on your bandwidth authority's output.

Bandwidth authorities measure relay capacity. Then they send their results to a
directory authority, and the directory authority puts the results in its vote. 
The
directory authority votes change the consensus weights of relays.

If your bandwidth authority isn't used for voting or testing, it's just wasting
bandwidth.

If you want to test and contribute code to a new bandwidth authority
implementation, I'd recommend:

https://github.com/TheTorProject/bwscanner

But you'll need to change the default bandwidth server config, due to the
tor project DDoS.
