BQ24610EVM: Powering up the BQ24610EVM

Part Number: BQ24610EVM


I just received the BQ24610EVM board for the first time. I'd like to follow the datasheet in figure 1 to connect a DC input power (power supply #1 in the fig) to an electric load (load #1 in the fig) without connecting a battery (load #2 in the fig). Keeping the same configuration the same as the figure, can I connect 24V DC power on the J1 ACPWR input, 1.8V DC on the J4 TS input, and the electric load in a constant current mode in J5 VSYS?  This configuration is not working - power supply #1 keeps turning on and off; I am not sure there is a short circuit somewhere.

To summarize, how can I connect a basic 24V DC power supply in the input and receive that current on Load#1 while the battery is disconnected?
