Pwr_AE.ThreshAE

Type: INSTANCE FUNCTION

Purpose: Setup threshold conditions which must be met before the Pwr_AE.StopAtAE() tests are performed.

Once any of the threshold tests is met, the StopAt criteria are evaluated for the rest of the scan. There are six threshold tests that you can perform:

VMin V < V_MinThresh
VMax V > V_MaxThresh
ADVMin abs(dV/dt) < ADV_MinThresh
ADVMax abs(dV/dt) > ADV_MaxThresh
DVMin dV/dt < DV_MinThresh
DVMax dV/dt < DV_MaxThresh

Threshold tests allow you to tune the StopAt tests more carefully. For example, you can avoid a premature experiment termination caused by an initial transient.

NOTE: Any threshold test starts all StopAt tests. Also once StopAt testing is enabled, it is never disabled, even if the Threshold test that enabled it is not longer valid.

Usage: 

Pwr_AE.ThreshAE(channel#, Vmin, Vmax, ADVMin, ADVMax, DVMin, DVMax)
     
channel# INDEX AE channel number
or NIL All AE channels
VMin REAL Enable StopAt if V < VMin
or NIL Disable this test
VMax REAL Enable StopAt if V > VMax
or NIL Disable this test
ADVMin REAL Enable StopAt If abs(dV/dt) < ADVMin
or NIL Disable this test
ADVMax REAL Enable StopAt If abs(dV/dt) > ADVMax
or NIL Disable this test
DVMin REAL Enable StopAt If dV/dt < DVMin
or NIL Disable this test
DVMax REAL Enable StopAt If dV/dt > DVMax
or NIL Disable this test
