Experiment 4 - The Flyback Diode

Reverse voltages occur at inductive loads such as motors, relays, transformers, and electromagnets.

In order to protect against reverse voltages, the voltage regulator circuit should include an additional diode, the so-called flyback diode...

Circuit voltage regulation with flyback diode. (Enlarge)

Also static discharges can destroy voltage regulators. Therefore, in environments where static electricity can be expected, diodes are used.

In the next step you learn how you can manipulate the output voltage...
