A Transient Voltage Surge Suppressor (TVSS) or Surge Protection Device (SPD), as they are also called, is a device that accomplishes two basic functions. It provides a place for a rise in current and voltage to equalize (other than across your equipment) load. The object is to do all of thisContinue Reading

Welcome to the World of Transients What are transients? A transient (surge, impulse, spike) is defined as a temporary rise in voltage and current on an electrical circuit that has been disturbed. They are high energy (with magnitudes in the thousands of volts) and short duration (with rise times inContinue Reading
