Power Supply Constant Voltage (CV) and Constant Current (CC) Modes

Young engineers and technicians often have trouble understanding constant voltage (CV) and constant current (CC) settings on a variable power supply when testing. Also they sometimes get confused why a power supply is only delivering 0.634 A to the load and not the 1 A that they set it for. The following video is made by a colleague of mine and it explains CV and CC modes on a power supply and how the load characteristics determine which mode the power supply is in. The first video explains from a theoretical point of view and the second one demonstrates it on a power supply and DC electronic load.
