Basic Electronics Notes
Figure 1 shows the V-I characteristics of a diode.
Need for Parallel operation
- When load on the system is increased, it is easy to ad
A power diode must be protected against over-voltage, over-current and transients.
An ideal switch is shown in Figure 1.
To analyze diode circuits, the state of the diode (on or off) must first be found. The diode can then be replaced by the switch equivalent circuit.
