What is the general test setup for DC-to-DC Converters?

Most power converter test are done with the general test set-up showed in Figure I. Some general conditions that apply (except where note) to test methods outlined in this notes are:

  • Adequate DC power source, and normal DC input voltage
  • +25oC ambient temperature
  • Full rated output load

DC-to-DC Converters

Note: If the converter under test with remote sense pins, connect these pins to their respective output pins. All tests are made in “ Local sensing ” mode.
