Axiom Test Equipment, an
electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post
that informs people about the versatility of an electronic load. When an AC or DC
supply must be evaluated, during design or even for maintenance, an electronic load
provides much needed capabilities.
Electronic loads provide insights into how the power source
behaves under different load conditions for AC or DC power sources. By keeping an
electrical parameter such as voltage, current, power, or resistance fixed, it can
measure voltage/current or power/resistance under constant-voltage (CV), constant-current
(CC), constant-power (CP), and constant-resistance (CR) conditions.
Starting the search for an electronic load usually begins
by understanding an application's requirements, for AC or DC testing. A suitable
electronic load should be rated for at least the maximum current, voltage, and power
of a UUT.

An electronic load is a versatile and effective measurement tool. It receives
electricity from a power source, such as a power supply or battery, and sinks current
to ground. It provides insights into how the power source behaves under different
load conditions for AC or DC power sources. By keeping an electrical parameter such
as voltage, current, power, or resistance fixed, it can measure voltage/current
or power/resistance under constant-voltage (CV), constant-current (CC), constant-power
(CP), and constant-resistance (CR) conditions. Armed with microprocessors, modern
electronic loads are "smart" and can quickly characterize a wide range of AC and
DC power sources, often showing clear test results on their own display screens
or on an external computer. When an AC or DC supply must be evaluated, during design
or even for maintenance, an electronic load provides much needed capabilities.
Electronic loads are often equipped with self-protection functions to protect
the user and the test equipment. Protection is typically provided against over-temperature,
over-voltage, over-current, and over-power conditions. These features make it safer
to use electronic loads, especially during high-power measurements, and can be found
in many of the AC, DC, and combination AC/DC electronic loads available from Axiom

Electronic loads for AC testing are typically built for single-phase and three-phase
AC power systems at standard grid voltages, such as 110 or 220 V AC, depending upon
region, but may also be capable of measurements at other AC voltages depending upon
the test equipment. Measurements are typically performed on units under test (UUTs)
such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), DC/AC inverters, and AC power supplies.
Electronic loads for DC measurements cover wider voltage ranges, testing such UUTs
as DC power supplies and supporting circuits, batteries, and solar panels. Finding
the best electronic load for an application is usually a matter of matching the
load's limits and capabilities to the needs of the application.
