High Voltage Power Supply GroundingAny type of high-voltage power supply requires an appropriate grounding technique for reliability and safety. There are many different types of ground paths that can produce different results for noise, resistance and inductance. Managing the type of ground path that will work for your high-voltage power supply means determining a design that’s going to work for your power supply optimally.

High-voltage power supply comes with a regulated and programmable product solution. Many high-voltage systems will require an extreme degree of accuracy even with grounding methods. Programming signals will need to share a ground with power ground ratings and this means that errors can be introduced if you’re using the wrong grounding system.

The Main Types Of Grounds To Choose From:
Input Power Source

An input power source contains a series of noise and a ripple current. Input power source ground is often referred to as a simple or error ground.  This system will simply reroute the input supply and make sure that it does not interact with the sensitive control circuits.

Output Ground

An output ground can be particularly useful in medium to low voltage systems but it can be problematic in high-voltage systems. If the voltage is not limited the peak current of the ark can be set to a highly destructive level. It is important to appropriately route the high-voltage levels especially when improper grounding techniques are used. Managing any type of high-voltage discharge is best done using other methods.

Field Failure And Poor Performance

Many high voltage applications will require a precision grounding solution that’s a low noise ground. The regulation and ripple effect needs to be less than .1% at 10,000 V in order to prevent accidents. I 0 to 5 V analog programming input in the model will make sure that grounding techniques can be solid. A poor grounding technique can continue to degrade performance and the accuracy of a monitor which could eventually lead to failure.

Choosing the right solution for your grounding performance can make sure that you can keep your circuit naturally connected and monitored accurately. Having the option to connect to a low noise ground and ground DC-10 will make sure that you can enjoy a high voltage power supply with a critical performance potential.
