Describe how the shunt regulator, shown below, works.
Assuming VZ = 5.73V, calculate the Vout, IS, IL, IC .
- List all devices and meters
- 1 potentiometer 50Ω
Using Multisim construct the circuit.
Replace the load resistance with the 50Ω potentiometer.
Vary it from 0Ω to 50Ω. For each setting of RL, measure Vout and record it in the table.
Set RL Measure Vout
Discuss the results.
