- Explain the function of the sections of a DC power supply Describe a block diagram of a DC power supply
- Explain the difference between line regulation and load regulation
- Recognize the difference between linear and switching power supplies
- Discuss how to setup and use a power supply
- Explain the process for troubleshooting power supplies
A DC power supply has advantages over a battery as a source of DC. A power supply can quickly provide an accurate voltage than can be changed or varied over a wide range. Unlike a battery, a power supply never runs down. Since AC electricity is widely available, most equipment will convert AC to DC within a power supply. This equipment needs a reliable voltage source for accurate testing when troubleshooting.
The Power Supplies training course identifies the main sections of a DC power supply. It describes the types of regulation and regulators. It also examines how a linear regulator works and how to troubleshoot power supply problems. This online course includes:
- DC power supply sections
- Line versus load regulation
- Linear versus switching regulation
- Using a power supply
- Troubleshooting power supplies
Power Supplies is part of the Test Equipment series.
