Transient testing.

May 26, 2013 in 8 Channel PDU by Joshua Oster-Morris

I just built up a rig to test the PDU under heavy transient load. Hopefully the gizmo can tame that into something a little bit less awful. That is 5A running into a large toroid inductor with a rapid low side disconnection. That gives us a 94 volt positive transient and 17 volt negative transient starting at 13.8V DC. That is plenty to grenade most semiconductors.
