A constant voltage or current is applied across a resistor for a given pulse duration.
For a repetitive pulse scenario, after computing the Pulse Energy on the left, enter the Cycle Time (T) of the pulse below.
If there is additional continuous power applied to the resistor along with the pulse, then enter that power below (Additional
Then click compute.
Please use American number formats that use decimal points instead of commas. For example, use "8.88" and not "8,88".
A capacitor is charged to a given voltage and then discharged through a wirewound resistor.
The application reaches a peak voltage and decreases at a rate proportional to its value. This is typically modeled by DO-160E
WF4 or IEC 61000-4-5 and represents a lightning surge.
