- This unique test setup can be used to evaluate the discharging performance (speed and energy density) of new dielectric materials (100 pF) or packaged capacitors (100 µF) under high voltage.
- PE loop test provides incorrect energy density for capacitor application: the charges of the sample is discharged to power supply in a linear function (10-100 ms) and it significantly over estimate the energy density! In practical application, the discharging usually in nanosecond to millisecond and the discharge is exponential decay!
- It controls a high voltage power supply to charge the specimen to a pre-set voltage à disconnect the charged sample from the power supply à connect the charged sample to a load resistor (user selectable) with a HV MOSFET switch.
- The voltage across the load is recorded with an oscilloscope through a HV probe. Data are then transferred to the host computer, and discharged energy density is calculated automatically.
- Two Operation Modes:
- Manual: the user control the charging relay and the discharging switch by pushing the buttons.
- Auto: computer control everything and save test results.
- Can also be used to measure dielectric breakdown strength of materials.
