Zener diode Voltage regulator calcutation
A Zener diode Voltage regulator calcutation is made using a simple circuit of a resistor /Rs) and a Zener diode (Z).
This two elements values and characteristics are obtained using special formulas
Transistorized Voltage Regulator Using a half and a full-wave rectifier we can convert an AC voltage in a DC one. This converted voltage is unregulated, because the output DC voltage does not remain constant. The output voltage of a power supply may vary due to changes in the load value. To reduce these variations we connect […]
Voltage regulator classification a) Linear voltage regulators Linear voltage regulators control the output voltage, continuously adjusting the voltage drop in a power transistor that is connected in series between the unregulated input and the load. Since an electric current must flow through the transistor all the time, the transistor have to operate in its linear region. Although they are simpler […]
