In a Zener diode voltage regulator circuit,the source series resistance Rs 20 ohm .Zener voltage Vz=18 volt.and lode resistance Rl=200 ohm.If source voltage Vs can vary from 20 volt to 30 volt ,find the maximum and minimum current in the diode?

• From the question;

•Vrs=20V-18V=2V, Irs=2÷20=0.1A, Irl=18÷200=0.09A, then Iz=0.1-0.09=0.01A,

•Vrs=30V-18V, Irs=12÷20=0.6A, Irl=18÷200=0.09A, then Iz=0.6-0.09=0.51A,

Therefore the minimum current is 0.01A or 10mA and the maximum current is 0.51A or 510mA
