    its really awesome man,,,,,,, it is the simplest explanation i ever seen,,

    Sir, one doubt.. to conduct zener diode as reverse biasis… The current flow from ground to positive ha between diode connect..

      Thanks for asking question….I dont understand what exactly you want….The equivalent circuit of zener diode is Battery ( DC voltage source) with cathode is positive terminal and anode will represent negative terminal of the dc source….now you may clear in current flow in Zener circuit….

    Why zener diode are not used in power circuits ?

    Sir i have a 12v light line. I want to change it to 24 v Line but would like to keep my 3w and 9w and 16w lights in the system.
    I must put some form of protection in the system to reduce 24v to 12v. Something simple i can build cheap. I bought 5w and 7 W down lights.On the transformer it says from 12v – 28v. It works on 24 Volt.

    Can you please help me with a circuit diagram and and the circuit comportment values

    Thank you.
