Abstract

The subject algorithm performs life testing for up to 20 power supplies. Each power supply is exercised by 11 tests a predetermined time apart from one another. Moreover, the power supplies start at staggered times apart so that the total power being drawn from all supplies is relatively constant over time, as is the heat generated by them.
