Zener diode

Explain how a Zener diode can be used as a voltage regulator

The Zener diode makes its use as a voltage regulator due to the following property:When a Zener diode is operated in the breakdown region, the voltage across it remains practically constant for a large change in the current. A simple circuit of a voltage regulator using a Zener diode is shown in Figure 1. The […]
