Hello! I just have a quick question about the wiper current of a potentiometer. I've never actually had to calculate wiper current before because I've never used a potentiometer in a current adjustment configuration in conjunction with a power supply before.
Anyway, if someone could provide me with formulas or show me the calculations for showing current flow (directions and magnitudes), it'd be highly appreciated.
(See attached image for wiring diagram.)
Thanks!
Edit: The voltage maximum is 15v and the current maximum is 52A.
