Definitions for "Inrush Current"
The current surge generated when a piece of equipment such as a servo amplifier is connected to an AC line. This surge is typically due to the impulse charging of a large capacitor located in the equipment.
The ac input current as measured during the initial turn-on of the power supply. This current reduces to a lower steady-state current once the input capacitors charge.
The peak power that a load will draw at the instant that it starts up.
