### What is the difference between voltage forward voltage and voltage drop?

Voltage is the potential difference between the source & any point in the circuit. The forward voltage is the voltage drop across the diode if the voltage at the anode is more positive than the voltage at the cathode (if you connect + to the anode). Voltage drop means, amount of voltage by which voltage across load resistor is less then the source voltage.

### What are voltage stabilizers?

Voltage Stabilizer is also called Automatic Voltage Stabilizer or AC Voltage Stabilizer or Voltage Regulator. Actually an automatic voltage stabilizer is designed to automatically maintain a constant voltage level, with protections of equipment against voltage surges, over voltage, under voltage, smoothing impulsive noise.

### Is voltage drop means lost of voltage?

Voltage drop means reduction of voltage. Additional Answer According to Kirchhoff's Voltage Law, the sum of the voltage drops around any closed loop within a circuit must equal the value of the supply voltage. So, no, a voltage drop is not a 'lost' voltage, as the circuit's supply voltage is accounted for when you add up all the voltage drops (including any internal voltage drop within the source itself).

### What is the conversion from RMS voltage to peak voltage?

The average voltage is the rms voltage. Volts peak = volts RMS times 1.414 Volts RMS = volts peak times 0.7071 Use the link below to an RMS voltage, peak voltage and peak-to-peak voltage calculator. ******************************** The average voltage is not the r.m.s. voltage. The average voltage of a sine wave is 0.636 x the peak value. Conversely, peak voltage is 1.57 the mean or average.

### Voltage regulation of transformer?

Transformers don't do voltage regulation they do voltage conversion. So you need something else to do the regulation because it can only multiply an (AC) voltage by some predetermined constant. So if they input voltage is not stable, then neither will the output. Answer A transformer's voltage regulation is defined as 'the variation of secondary voltage, from no-load to full-load, expressed either as a per-unit or percentage of its no-load voltage'. In other words: voltage…

### How much current does a flashlight use is it's batteries supply 4.5 volts and it's bulb has a resistance of 9 ohms?

Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance. Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance. Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance. Ohm's Law: Voltage = current x resistance; solving for voltage, current = voltage / resistance.

### Average voltage to peak to peak?

Conversions of RMS voltage, peak voltage and peak-to-peak voltage. That are the used voltages. The expression "average" voltage is used for RMS voltage. Scroll down to related links and seach for "RMS voltage, peak voltage and peak-to-peak voltage". Answer 'Average' is not the same as 'root mean square'. As the average value of a sinusoidal voltage is zero, you cannot convert it to a peak-to-peak value.

### What is the difference of Medium voltage and high voltage?

Medium voltage is typically the voltage going from the substations to the service drops. One typical distribution voltage in the US is 13.2 Kv. (That voltage is dropped by the distribution transformer to a low voltage, typically 12/240 split phase or 480 three phase.) High voltage is typically the voltage going from substation to substation. One typical transmission voltage in the US is 138 Kv.
