Transport will play a critical role in delivering the CO2 emissions cuts needed to meet global political cli-

Measuring the supply voltage with a voltmeter, everything checks out well. There does not appear to
be an overvoltage condition causing a legitimate "crowbar" event in the circuit. Disconnecting the load from
the crowbar circuit and powering it up with a standard bench-top laboratory power supply reveals the load
to be in perfect condition. Thus, both the source and the load have been eliminated as possibilities that
may have blown the fuse(s).
