Vishay Joule School Pulse Energy Calculator

Check out the free Joule School Pulse Energy Calculator on the Vishay Intertechnology’s website. The online pulse energy calculator helps designers select the right wirewound resistor for their application. The tool gives engineers the choice of three pulse types to calculate: square wave pulse, capacitive charge/discharge pulse, and exponentially decaying pulse.

Joule School Pulse Energy Calculator

  • Enables designers to determine the energy of a pulse that could go through a resistor
  • Three pulse types to calculate: square wave pulse, capacitive charge/discharge pulse, and exponentially decaying pulse
  • Helps engineers select the right wirewound resistor for their application
  • Simple to use — just enter the required variables and click Compute to determine the pulse energy and average power
  • Ideal for selecting wirewound resistors for applications exposed to large pulses (such as a capacitive charge/discharge or lightning surge, including phone towers, solar power systems, windmills, welders, test equipment, and power supplies)
