Introduction This aspect of the review is at the core of the reason I applied of this RoadTest. I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge around partial discharge in high voltage insulation systems, that I had previously experimented with using the MDO34 and attempted to rebuild partial discharge patterns with its built in waveform generator. I had struggled to obtain satisfactory results with this, so I hoped that the increased capabilities of the AFG31052 would overcome the previous c ...
Sine wave distortion
Total harmonic distortion
Spurious output measurement
Triangular wave linearity
Introduction This is a continuation of the verification tests on the waveform generators and comparing the AFG31052 results to other instruments. Sine wave distortion This is another measurement in the verification steps from Tektronix and is further supplemented by a total harmonics distorti ...
AC Flatness Test
AM Modulation Depth
Square Wave Duty Cycle
Square wave rise and fall times
Introduction For the first part of my review, I aim to carry out verification tests on the AFG31052, carry out the same tests on a Rigol DG1022, Uni-T UTG962 and the AWG element of the MDO34 that I also have in my possession. For some of the tests, the Picoscope 340 ...
