An AVR is an automatic voltage regulator. It is a device that intercepts fluctuations in the power supplied to the computer and ensures that neither power surges or brownouts affect it.

WHAT IS full form of AVR in AVR microcontrollers?
The acronym AVR has been reported to stand for Advanced Virtual RISC, but it has also been rumored to stand for the initials chip's designers: Alf and Vegard [RISC]. Atmel says that the name AVR is not an acronym and does not stand for anything in particular. ...

What is AVR?
AVR is also a line of microcontrollers made by Atmel. Atmel says the three letters don't stand for anything, it's just the name. AVR can also stand for Automatic Voltage Regulator. There are many uses of this abbreviation, see the link below. Answer #2: avr name as advance volatage regulator or advanced vertiually risc and it is two scientists name ...
which is the best kardon avr?
It all depends on what you're looking for in your AVR. I'd go with a basic one if you don't need some of the more advanced features. ...
Asked in Home Theater
Is a AVR or pure sine wave UPS adequate to protect home theater equipment?
avr would be cheaper but normally provides a "sawtooth" type wave instead of a pure sine wave. AVR was made for computer equipment that is less sensitive than home theater equipment where a "dirty" wave will create artifacts and shadows as well as have a noise effect on audio equipment. In short if you can afford it get a pure sine wave UPS, but if not AVR will be better than nothing. ...
Asked in Electrical Engineering
How is AVR regulate the generator voltage?
AVR stands for Automatic Voltage Regulator for generator. Most AVR work by automatically comparing the sensed voltage with the reference setting generator output voltage then diverting the input current to the exciter circuit. Some AVR circuit are configured in parallel connection with the exciter stator winding, When it sense below rated set voltage, more current is feed to the exciter to catch up the voltage difference until it would reach equilibrium again, when it is within rated voltage less current is feed to...
Why is there change in terminal voltage as load applied to a three phase alternator?
The AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulator) control the DC field voltage to the rotor of the alternator, as soon as higher load is demanded from the alternator, the AVR output voltage go higher, hence, a higher AC voltage on the output of the alternator. If the voltage go to high then the AVR is faulty. ...
