Zener diode as voltage regulator, working & applications

Zener diode

Zener Diode is a special purpose PN junction diode its construction is similar to a conventional PN junction diode. Here we will discuss the working of Zener diode as voltage regulator. Overview: Zener diode is a special type of Diode specifically designed to operate in reverse biased mode. Zener diodes are available in the range from 3V to 200 Volts. They are operated in a breakdown region hence they are called breakdown diode.The reverse breakdown voltage of the Zener diode adjusts by doping level. Biasing of zener diode: Biasing of…
