Additionally, a question was asked if the DVM Efficiency Testplan could step the load current in logarithmic or decade steps. While the testplan generator dialog doesn't currently do this, you can slightly modify the auto-generated files to accomplish a decade step. In the archive is a complete example. There are two testplans and two "change" LoadComponentValues files which accomplish the linear step (what we currently have built-in) and a decade step.
