## Zener Diode & Zener Voltage Regulator Calculator

Published on

A zener diode is a type of diode that, when the current reaches the zener voltage, allows it to flow both forward and backward. It has a PN junction diode that is heavily doped. Even after a substantial change in the current flow, the diodes don’t change. The zener diode is a vital component of electrical circuits and is found in many different types of electrical devices.

Zener diode resistor calculator usedÂ to calculateÂ the resistance power and zener power by entering the values for load current, input, and output voltage.

# Formula:

VL = VZ

### Value of Resistor:

R = [(VIN (MIN)â€“ VOUT) / (IL + 10)] x 1000

### Zener Power:

ZP = (VIN (MAX) â€“ VOUT) / R) x VOUT

### Resistance Power:

RP = (VIN (Max) â€“ VOUT) 2Â­Â­ / R

Where,

R = Value of Resistor
ZP = Power of Zener Diode
RP = Power of Resistor
