Voltage Regulator using current limiter

Voltage Regulator using current limiter

There are times when the amount of current that is required of a power supply exceeds its potential.

If the current demand is very high, the pass transistor of the voltage regulator may be damaged. On these cases it is necessary that the circuit has an overcurrent protection.

Transistor - Zener diode Voltage regulator circuit

Transistor – Zener diode Voltage regulator circuit

Transistor – Zener diode Voltage regulator circuit

This circuit delivers an output voltage established by the voltage of the zener diode less 0.7 volts. The 0.7 volts is the average voltage drop between the base and the emitter of a transistor. (Vbe)
