The diagram shows a zener diode regulator. It is given that V1=35V. The diode has thezener voltage VZ=24V. The load resistance varies bet ween the limits 500 Ω ≤ RL≤ 10 kΩ.1(a) Calculate R1if IZis to have a value that is no smaller than 10 mA.NotethatI1is aconstant once R1is determined and I1= IZ+ IL. Thus the minimum value of IZoccurswhen ILis a maximum (when RLis a minimum) because this makes IZhave the smallestvalue.R1=35 V − 24 V0.01 A + 24 V/500 Ω= 190 Ω(b) What is the po wer dissipation in R1and the maximum power dissipation in the zenerdiode? Note that I1is a constant and I1= IZ+ IL. Thus the maximum dissipation in thezener diode occurs when ILis its smallest value because this makes IZhave the largest value.P1=(35 V − 24 V)2190 Ω=0.637 W PZ max=24Vµ35 V − 24 V190 Ω−24 V10 kΩ¶=1.33 W5.
