AC, DC Loads Evaluate Electrical Use

VISTA, Calif. - Sept. 7, 2022 - PRLog -- Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new whitepaper that explains how electronic loads are able to enhance the performance of AC and DC power supplies and energy sources. Connecting an AC or DC electronic load to the output of an AC or DC power supply, respectively, enables it to replace the electronic circuitry normally at that point in an electronic design or product and study the behavior of the power supply under a variety of operating conditions.

A power supply can be analyzed by connecting it to a suitable-sized resistor to sink current to ground. However, such a passive load is not representative of most actual applications. An electronic load mimics the complexity of a real-world load with resistance, inductance, and capacitance that can vary under changing conditions. Whether by manual tuning or programmed under computer control, an electronic load can mimic the many different load conditions facing a power supply in a circuit or system and be part of testing that provides data on how a power supply responds to those conditions.

Selecting an electronic load can be guided by the application to be tested, whether a sizeable 220 VAC three-phase unit under test (UUT) maintained by a regular schedule of measurements or a lower power, lower voltage DC supply that must be tested in large volumes as part of production-line quality-assurance measurements.
