Rectified AC Load Modes
The 63800 AC & DC Electronic Load provides unique capability to simulate non-linear rectified loads for a wide range of testing applications. There are three load modes available for rectified load simulations: RLC, CP and Inrush Current. The figure below shows the typical model of a rectifier input.
Example: Inrush Current Mode
For inrush current simulation (see below), the 63800 provides an Inrush Current mode that allows the user to set different inrush current amplitude and voltage phase angle where the inrush current started.
