    Sense input current of boost converter use Keysight power supply

    I need to measure the current flow into my boost converter circuit. I use Keysight power supply model E3648A, it has sense terminal (s+ and s-). Can I use the sense terminal to measure voltage drop over the sense resistor?

    Thx

    Re: Sense input current of boost converter use Keysight power supply

    I suggest you look at the manual.

    usually the sense terminals of a power supply are for remote sensing of the power supply output voltage

    using them makes the supply output voltage correct at the sense location, instead of at the
    outputs on the physical machine.

    Re: Sense input current of boost converter use Keysight power supply

    Reversed sense leads – on most power supplies, the output voltage will rapidly ... and draws about 10% of rated output current to reduce the output voltage. ... For example, the Keysight N678xA models use a series regulator.
