Excitation Timing?

Hi, I am trying to describe the timing between voltage pulses. Can I use excitation timing in the following sentence or is there a better phrase for it?

"When the current variation becomes small, high-frequency noise occurs easily and affects the excitation timing."

Along the same line, has anyone heard of "non-excitation" phase?

    Why not say "timing of the excitation pulses" to be more clear? I'm not sure what you mean by "non-excitation phase". Are you referring to phase as in the "angle" of a complex time harmonic signal or phase as in a "stage of some process"

    I think that reads nicely.

    Isn't that somewhere between 'courtship' and 'heavy petting'? :D


    Would 'quiescent phase' be a better form? I always think that there's something not-quite-total about a "non- ~" expression.
