Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: How do you represent your tubes in PSUD2?

What I look at most is once I have the proper voltage and ripple within what I set as targets, I use the stepped load option. I always set my load as a CCS, as that is what I usually use as a load, (that is of course optional). Then with the stepped load, I can see how fast my power supply can respond to variations of current demand. Remember CCSs aren't perfect and there is always some variation in demand, even more so with other loads, so chose your stepped demand carefully. To me, the response to variations of time/current are key.

I can use various values of caps, chokes, resistance, number of sections, as well as choke or cap input, to effect the speed of power delivery (while of course keeping voltage and ripple requirements within limits). I try and get the quickest response from my supply, while staying within the voltage/ripple criteria that I want.
