Hi Sunil k,

>> Do we need to install load controller in visual studio enterprise 2015?

If you want to ran your Load Test using Visual Studio 2015 and  Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) or Team Foundation Server (TFS) 2015, please install Test Agent for Visual Studio 2015. We need not Test Controller.

If you want to run your Load test in following situation, please install the Test Agent and Test Controller for Visual Studio 2013 and Test Agent 2013 Update 5.

  • Load tests using on-premises remote machines

  • Continuous tests remotely using Microsoft Test Manager or MSTest and test settings for lab environments

  • Continuous tests using TFS 2013

In addition, following article provide detailed steps about using Test Controller and Test Agent in Load Test. Hope it can help you.
