Power Supply block Diagram

Many electronic circuits need a direct current (DC) voltage source, but what we commonly find are voltage sources of alternating current (AC). In order to achieve a direct current voltage source, the alternating current input must follow a conversion process.

How to Measure Beta of a Transistor? (β / hfe of transistor)

How to Measure Beta of a Transistor? (β / hfe of transistor)

How to Measure Beta of a Transistor? (β / hfe of transistor)

The beta (β) is a characteristic of each transistor. This feature is found in the NTE, ECG manuals, etc. These manuals have a minimum or approximate values of the real values. This means that we do not know the real value of the transistor.

Transistorized Voltage Regulator (Zener & Transistor)

Transistorized Voltage Regulator (Zener & Transistor)

Transistorized Voltage Regulator Why use a transistorized voltage regulator? If we use a half or a full-wave rectifier we can convert an AC voltage in a DC one. This converted voltage is unregulated, because the output voltage is not constant and can change due to variations of the load value. To reduce these variations we connect […]

If the current required in the load exceeds the maximum allowed, the voltage regulator can be damaged. To avoid this problem it is necessary to have over current protection.
