DC Input Sources

The following input sources are available for use with DVM:

Managed Sources

DVM has this concept of a "Managed Source." Quite simply, a managed source is one for which DVM has specification information. In this context, specification information includes:

 A managed-source subcircuit has these options available:

  • Represent a constant DC voltage source
  • Represent a start-up ramp or a pulsed line voltage source
  • Perform input impedance measurements by including components that inject an AC small signal perturbation into the circuit and measure the resulting input impedance
