10
TUTORIAL 3 SOLUTION a)Line regulation as applied to a voltage regulator is a measure of its ability to maintain a constant output voltage despite variation in the input voltage. It is the change of output voltage per unit change in the input voltage and is normally expressed in percentage form, thus;

26
TUTORIAL 3 a) SOLUTION

27
TUTORIAL 3 If I L and V o are constant, I 3 will also be constant. Hence; b) SOLUTION (cont’d)

28
TUTORIAL 3 When R L is shorted, V o = 0. Therefore; c) SOLUTION (cont’d)

29
TUTORIAL 3 Q8 Describe the operation of the following regulator;

30
TUTORIAL 3 If the load resistance R L suddenly decreases, the output voltage V o will also decrease. The decrease in V o will be followed by a decrease in V 4. The output of the op-amp V OA decreases because V OA = A O (V 4 – V Z ) and V Z being constant. SOLUTION

31
TUTORIAL 3 The drop in V OA reduces the V BE bias voltage of Q 1 and hence reduces I C1. The reduction in I C1 means more of I R1 can flow through R L and thereby increases the output voltage V o. This increase compensates for the previous drop in V o. SOLUTION (cont’d)
