H4P1: Zener Regulator A non-ideal voltage source can be modeled by a series combination of an ideal DC voltage source, a resistance, and a small-signal voltage source. The small-signal source is included to represent the noise inherent in the source. This model is illustrated in the figure below: In practice, connecting the non-ideal voltage source to a load may result in undesirable effects due to the noise voltage vo appearing across the load. This problem studies such effects and how a Zener diode may be used to ameliorate the problem. Assume that VI=13.0V, RIN=1kΩ, and vi=20.0m

    there is more to this problem: and here are some pictures Again, we calculate vo (i.e. output noise) and VO (i.e. DC output voltage) for RL=2kΩ and RL=4kΩ for this new circuit. Hint: Your first job here is to determine which of the three regions of the piecewise-linear characteristic of the Zener is the one containing the operating point: we suggest you sketch a load line, but be very careful about the signs. Once you have determined where the operating point is, you can model the Zener in the circuit with a series combination of an independent voltage source and a resistor.

    so far, i have only been able to solve for RL=2kohm, Vo is 8.6667 volts. if anyone could explain this one i'd appreciate it.

    What about the last bit, minimum value of RL..Im getting it wrong.

    Teh minimum value of RL is the value of RL when the voltage across the RL is equal to that of Vz

    @nick67, I tried looking at the your explanation. But couldn't figure out the answer when the Zener diode is implemented. Could you please explain it again?

    @yahya.aamir Hi, you should separate DC and AC analysis, this way: |dw:1349534424806:dw|

    @Nurali could you post the question in a separate post ? I'm quite sure that Stefo should be very interested, too; he has big knowledge about FETs

    Thank nick67, solving the problem, i found the value of Vo for RL=ΚΩ, also, i found the same Vo when RL = 4ΚΩ. How i can find the relevants u0 when RL=2 and 4 ΚΩ?
