Seismic Test on SCR based Float cum Boost Battery Charger

Seismic test was carried out on 24V SCR based Float cum Boost Battery Charger. The acceleration levels of Required Response Spectrum (RRS) at 5% damping prescribed in IS 1893 (Part-1) – 2002, zone V was increased by 10% and used to generate compatible time histories and these time histories are used to excite the shake as per test parameter. RRS plus 10% and Achieved Test Response Spectrum (TRS). The TRS envelopes the RRS plus 10% over the given frequency range for Seismic test. Time history of response recorded by accelerometers and strain gauges mounted on 24V SCR based Float Cum Boost Charger during Seismic test.
