A power diode must be protected against over-voltage, over-current and transients.
An ideal switch is shown in Figure 1.
Diodes in DC Circuits
To analyze diode circuits, the state of the diode (on or off) mus
Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV)
The peak inverse voltage rating of a diode is the maximum re
The maximum power that can be controlled by a single diode is determined by its rated reverse voltage and by its rated forward current.
If the load current is greater than the current rating of a single diode, then two or more diodes can be connected in parallel
There is greater concentration of holes in P-region and electrons in N-region. This difference in concentration
