An Introduction to Voltage Regulators

Voltage Regulators

Voltage Regulators

A voltage regulator is found in electronic devices, and it is used to maintain the voltage of the power source so that it stays within acceptable limits. Voltage regulators are designed several different ways – it could be a simple “feed-forward” design, it may include negative feedback control loops, or it could use an electromechanical mechanism, or electronic components. Also, voltage regulators may be used to regulate one or more AC or DC voltages, depending on the design.
