PBO Scalar vs PPT, TDC, EDC

Hi guys

I was wondering how exactly PBO works. As far as I understood usually boost is limited either by power or current. Raising those limits, let's the CPU boost longer before hitting the temperature limits. So usually I set those to enable/board maximum.

What then does the scalar do? Especially in conjunction with the limits?

The scalar is supposed to force the CPU to hold speed while at its limits for longer.
