What is the RESISTANCE column in the Dev Electrical page ?

What is the RESISTANCE column in the Dev Electrical page ?

Can a BUS or a bus-bus connection be assigned a Resistance ?

ie Connection made resistance
If so, this may be the way to add the simulation of the battery Internal Resistance ?

Hello @N6722C

Are you referring to this view?

If so, this is only applicable to circuits and the way the resistance is computed is documented here:
Additional Config Information (flightsimulator.com)

Wow I spent 30 minutes diagnosing a power issue yesterday (by inspecting SimVars) and I never realised there is a "ElectricalSystemDebug" window somewhere in the SDK! Thanks for posting.

I have "lived" on that page for the past 2 weeks .., and I still have not figure out what the "Supplied" Power is. -- or more precisely, how it is being calculated in this Page.


Voltage, Resistance %, AMPS yes, but how the Power relates to them remains a mystery to me.. (so much so, that I ended up shrinking that column down so it is not visible, as it makes no sense to me at all).

But finally, (with the aid of a spreasheet to calculate values), I now have all my Circuit Parameters (Pmin, Pmax & Vmin) calculated, and proving the correct loads as wanted, with and without Resistor % circuit connections.
