German term or phrase: Summenstrom
Auf den beiden Verbindungsleitungen vom Steuerschrank zum PC im Testraum wurden als Summenstrom 364,7 mA Gleichstrom gemessen.

Is there a term for this? I thought I would use "cumulative current", but is this right?

Thanks,

Angela

"Total Current" or "Sum Current"


Explanation:
Total Current:

Total Current: Look at the following bilingual citations:

http://www.leybold-didactic.com/ga/Produkte_Allgemeinbildung...

German: “Belastbarkeit: Summenstrom Iges = 3 A”

English: “Maximum load capacity: total current Itot = 3 A”


Sum Current: Look at the following bilingual citation:

http://hbksun17.fzk.de:8080/literatur/ABSTRACTS/6075.htm

German:

“Kurzfassung

Durch eine lineare Abhängigkeit der Plasmadichte vom Summenstrom sämtlicher Oberflächengleitentladungen läßt sich die Dichte durch geeignete Beschaltung der Quelle kontrolliert steuern.”

English:

“Abstract

Due to a linear dependence of the plasma density from the sum current through all surface flashover units the density is easily controlled by external electronic components.”

It is also evident that the other alternatives suggested are just as viable, including "aggregate" and "cumulative."
