This article describes a simple and effective technique for adding inductive characteristics in a dissipative electronic load. Load resistance and inductance can be adjusted to desired value over a wide range. The additional feature offers flexible operation and eliminates the bulky and costly inductance for testing of power supplies as a dummy load. The proposed technique simulates the exponential current response to applied voltage step and attenuation of ripple in the load current. The energy storage and back electromotive force property of a physical inductor cannot be simulated. Experimental results confirm the inductive behavior of load. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
