Abstract

Power supply outputs are monitored by comparing the power supply output against over-voltage (OV) and under-voltage (UV) limits. These limit voltages are usually obtained from fixed resistor divider networks and, accordingly, necessitate a resistance change in the system to provide a limit change.
