Nickjohnson posted his flexible dummy load project in the project log forum:

I’ve been testing Loki’s power supply lately, and hurting for the lack of a good dummy load. There are plenty of flexible dummy load projects out there, but they’re largely over-engineered and on the expensive side. I decided to put together a really simple but flexible dummy load.

    Hi,
    Just wondering, how can I use the dummy load you created to test a negative power supply?
    Thanks!
    John
