Improved Range Resistors for AC-DC Transfer Measurements



H. O. Wolcott, Joseph R. Kinard Jr., Thomas E. Lipe Jr.


This paper discusses the factors contributing to the ac-dc differences of high-voltage thermal converters. A novel resistor designed to minimize these contributions is described and measurements illustrating its performance are summarized.
