Abstract : The patent describes a high voltage, high power solid-state regulator circuit, having a Zener referenced differential amplifier for sensing load requirements and providing an error signal to a common-base amplifier. This common-base amplifier is coupled to a first pair of transistors arranged in a Darlington configuration which are, in turn, coupled to a plurality of load sharing regulating sections, each section including a pair of transistors in a Darlington configuration coupled to a third transistor which acts as an error sensor and D.C. amplifier. These load sharing regulating sections are coupled to one another and to a resistive divider network in such a manner that the error sensing third transistor within each section causes its associated Darlington pair to assume its proportionate share of the load. A small current through the resistive divider network controls the division of voltages between the load sharing sections.
