    Abstract: An organic light emitting diode (OLED) display is disclosed. According to one aspect, the OLED display includes pixels including an OLED and a driving transistor for supplying a driving current according to an image data signal to the OLED. The display includes a sensor configured to sense a first current flowing to the driving transistor corresponding to a source data input signal. An operation voltage of a saturation region of the driving transistor is measured based on performance information of the OLED by using the same current amount as the first current. A voltage controller is configured to determine a minimum electroluminescence voltage for driving the pixels based on information received from the sensor. A power supply is configured to control a power source voltage applied to the pixels according to the determined electroluminescence voltage, and supply the determined power source voltage.
