donde [alfa] es el coeficiente de no linealidad el cual caracteriza la region no lineal de la curva V-I del varistor, el cual se puede hallar tomando parejas de valores [V.
The performance of the tripler designed in this work is comparable with the ones also designed with varistors, but apparently inferior to the tripler designed by varactor, considering the output frequency of the varactor tripler is about three times that of the varistor triplers.

Posteriormente se realizo la misma simulacion, utilizando en este caso el modelo de un DPS conformado por un varistor de oxido de zinc para funcionamiento en 35 V(ca), con una capacidad de corriente de descarga [I.
Kyocera and affiliate AVX developed the EMI filters with the varistor function based on AVX advanced material technology.
If there is any risk that the varistor structure might be irreversibly damaged due to an increased energy load, the user is informed by the yellow indicator and the remote signalling function.
Engine protection is based on oil pressure, temperature, ignition and anti-knock control and misfire detection, output control, air fuel mixture control, synchronization, power factor (Cos-PHI) monitoring and varistor monitoring.
As Figure 5 illustrates (next page), energy runs up one lead of the component, dissipates through the varistor, and out the other lead using the path of least resistance.
