Experiment 6 - Increased Output Voltage with Zener Diodes
In the last experiment you increased the output voltage
of a voltage regulator with a trick.
For this you used a diode.
However, you can also use Zener diodes...
Again you deceive the voltage regulator with a
false zero potential.
However this time you use a
Zener diode with a breakdown voltage of
Circuit diagram voltage regulator with Vout = 10.6 Volt.
Circuit voltage regulator with Vout = 10.6 Volt.
Now your voltage regulator 7805
has an output voltage of Vout = 10.6 Volt.
But now back to the problem of a large load
and heat generation...
