The voltage output will never go above the set voltage in a decent power supply, but it will go below to restrict the current.

Sorry if I may seem like a dunce, but I was always under the impression that the voltage and the resistance determine the current, but from what I understand from your text its the current that determines the voltage.

Basic algebra. Any equation can be reversed. If 2V gives you 2A, then 2A gives you 2V.

Yes I realize that, but this does not really have anything to do with the matter at hand. Also in your previos post, what does the maximum of the current and the maximum voltage have anything to do with limiting said parameters ? If my power supply can go upto 50 volts and 10 amps, then why do these matter at all when i limit the votlage and current at lesser values. In constant voltage mode, it will draw its own current, but not above the maximum 10A, in constant current mode it will draw its own voltage, but not above the maximum 50 volts. I can limit the voltage and current in lesser values as I please, all dependant on the load.

Main argument was that "constant current" and "current limit" are not the same... In my eyes, they arent the same, how can they be, in one mode you will always have a constant current and voltage at the same time, depending on the load. In the other, you will have your current maximum value set to a point, you can fiddle around with the voltage, but it will never go over your set limit, only under ?

I do not have a bench power supply myself, but this is as much as I have gathered from the videos and tutorials over the internet
