  • Patent number: 10788850
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relates to a method and device for balancing a supply current. In one embodiment, a current supply current for a load is detected. A first signal representing the current supply current is transmitted to a digital logic module. A second signal representing a maximum supply current and a third signal representing a minimum supply current are received from the digital logic module. A subsequent supply current for the load is determined based on the current supply current, the maximum supply current and the minimum supply current. By using the method and device according to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the supply currents of a plurality of power supply units for the load can be balanced a simple way with a low hardware cost.
