Abstract : A high-current zener diode array applied as a voltage transient suppressor is demonstrated. The advantage of this type of device over series line regulating devices such as the linear series regulator, chopper type regulator, and the voltage cut-off device is described. The zener diode when applied as a transient suppressor offers simplicity in circuit design, absence of line insertion loss, and minimum power dissipation in the non-transient operating conditions.
