For the forward voltage to be 100V the current would need to be several orders of magnitude larger. Are you familiar with the exponential nature of the diode equation? The exponent is ≈ 3,846+, and e to that power is too big for my TI calculator.Good day to you. Does anyone know of a diode that can handle 10 amps continuously and has a forward voltage/a voltage drop of 100 volts? A link to it or a part number i could google would be very kind of you. Thanks
can you expand upon what you want to do pleaseGood day to you. Does anyone know of a diode that can handle 10 amps continuously and has a forward voltage/a voltage drop of 100 volts? A link to it or a part number i could google would be very kind of you. Thanks
Link to diodeGood day to you.
A big thermionic diode valve, or a mercury arc rectifier?Good day to you. Does anyone know of a diode that can handle 10 amps continuously and has a forward voltage/a voltage drop of 100 volts? A link to it or a part number i could google would be very kind of you. Thanks
You could use three or four 300W solar panels if you cover them with aluminium foil to keep them in the dark. There are about the right number of silicon pn junctions for that voltage drop, and they will take 10A.You could just connect 143 standard 10 amp (Or higher current rating.) in series. That would give you a volts drop of 143 x 0.7 = 100.1 volts drop. Bear in mind that you will have to find a way to the 1KW of heat the group of diodes will produce. Quite a large fan would be required to keep them cool. I too can't think of an application that would want a large forward voltage drop. In most situations you aim to have the smallest forward voltage drop.

Then what would he use to make his hats?if you cover them with aluminium foil to keep them in the dark.
