The series current limiting resistance, RS, is 200Ω. The load resistance, RL, is 800 Ω. a) Redraw the circuit with the Zener diode replaced by the appropriate circuit model. Include both the forward and reverse branches. Page 5 of 7 b) Calculate the load voltage, VL (i.e., voltage drop across RL) if the unregulated voltage source, Vs, is 14V. c) Calculate the load voltage, VL (i.e., voltage drop across RL) if the unregulated voltage source, Vs, is 20V.
