    Lab testing of SMPS ?

    Hi,

    Check the efficiency at different load current, Vout and Vin condition. Line and load transient response. Switching frequency, output ripple, reference voltage and other smps features/protection like OTP, UVP and OVP.

    Cheers

    Re: Lab testing of SMPS ?

    User "gauravbishnoi" has wrongly made his reply as report.

    It is here
    hiiiiiii parameters are given as follows..... 1- you check i/p impedence of smps. 2- first you connect black & green wire of ATX connector then you give the power(220v ac) through power cable.And check condition of smps. 3. If fan is rotating then smps may be OK.

    Re: What tests should i perform on a SMPS power supply in la

    output recovery from thermal shutdown protection, overcurrent, short circuit, input brown out

    power up and down at various load, line conditions, different input voltage ramp rates
