CHAPTER 4 (Solid State Power Supplies) (continued)
A full-wave rectifier.
To hold the ripple to an absolute minimum.
LC capacitor-input filter.
More expensive and its larger size.
Low DC output voltage.
Series and Shunt.
Provides a constant current regardless of changes in the input voltage or load current.
1,000 volts to 30,000 volts.
Better voltage regulation.
The pass transistor is in series with the load.
So the load being supplied by the power supply can be wired directly to the metal chassis.
Visual and Signal Tracing.
The process of providing an increase in amplitude.
A device that enables an input signal to control an output signal.
To provide various amounts of signal amplification.
Characteristics of the input and output signals.
The amount of time (in relation to the input signal) that current flows in the output circuit.
Class A, Class B, Class AB, and Class C.
