How to Create Arbitrary Power Waveforms

Application Notes

Power arbitrary waveforms (arbs), applied to reactive loads, can control current or characterize the response to a dynamic change in power.

Examples include the following:

  • Using a staircase or ramp waveform to slowly increase the voltage to a device to avoid a large inrush current
  • Applying a sine wave to test a device’s input capacitor filtering capability
