I am trying to add a pulsing current source to the output of a buck converter. I would like to set it for 0.2 ms pulses and test it at 5 ms, 10 ms, and 100 ms. For example, pulsing starts at 5.0 ms and stops at 5.2 ms with X pulses in that time frame. I will eventually this current over this time period and write a script in order to calculate the power. I will then compare this power to the input power of the buck converter in order to calculate its efficiency. Can someone please give me some advice regarding how to create this current source?

Thank you,

You may try to create a PWL function (open the Signal editor and select PWL mode) The syntax of the  PWL signal is simple, you only need to define the corner points of the signal:
<time>, <voltage or current>
