I am an automotive reliability and test engineer. I do environmental or electrical tests and during these tests I need to load my products. By load I mean, for example, there is a mosfet driven by a high side driver, what should I connect to this mosfet as a load so that the test conditions are correct.
For example, it is desired that the current passing through the mosfet is 5A by design, but that selected mosfet can give 8A, but we later learn that in real use conditions, the product draws 4A, not 5A. In the light of this information, how much load do I need to connect to the output of that mosfet during these tests?
If you know of a standard or article for this, I would appreciate it if you could share it.
