This page here, displays the Voltage Regulation formula Incorrectly.
Actual formula is:
So admin, edit the contents as fast as you can.
The percent of regulation will always be the formula as described in the AAC ebook, when describing the capabilities of the power source.
Hi jrboog,So ? There are going to be upadated text on PN Junctions and all the other lovely semiconductor devices.
As of now in the EE program at Univeristy of Utah we are covering
material in this order. (in the ECE 2280 class)
PN Juntions ( diode ) then
MOSFETS (have no clue why this first) then..
BJT's (shouldve been after diodes)
and man let me tell you we have a poor poor teacher that has confused the entire class regarding Mosfets and BJT's... Im looking foward to devouring the text from this site... and hoping I can correctly grasp this stuff.
Its amazing to me how much easier the EET (non engineerig) books are to read and understand. Plus very little math.... Seems like I may do some reconsidering.
Thanks for all your hard work. (guys / gals at www.allaboutcircuits.com)
Thanks for the comments JoeJester. I will proceed with the correction of the worked example, and as far as we are concerned at this moment no further corrections are required to this chapter.Dave,
I don't think differentiation is needed except at times when some "challenge" what is written.
During those times, the challenger can provide their source so the members can ascertain the context of the source.
The language barrier of the members alone causes some problems. The Brits and Yanks use different words.
This is where the confusion comes in, the e-book states one formula then proceeds to solve the worked example using a different formula. As far as my understanding is, the stated formula is correct as written however there is a discrepancy with the worked example. I would like to bring the worked example into line with the stated equation, and if we feel there is scope to add further descriptions of other formulae that are applicable in other circumstances then so we can look into this.i concur with mr joe
but i am completely sure of the terminologies used for regulation.
i also believe the example solved isnt incorrect ,its just isnt in agreement with
the given formula.
Thanks for the suggested texts, I will see what they have to say on this matter. If you do come across any further information that will be of use please do share.a ref book for westinghouse eng
explained regulation as
load losses in kw,at rated kva/rated kva
also i will inform u if i come across something 'substantial'.
