Diode Characteristic Curve Calculation at Different Temperatures using Matlab

In this article, we will draw characteristic curves of a diode at different temperatures. From the following equation, it is evident that the thermal voltage and the reverse saturation current of a diode depend on the temperature. $i={{I}_{s}}\left[ {{e}^{\left( {}^{v}/{}_{n{{V}_{T}}} \right)}}-1 \right]\text{          }\cdots \text{      (1)}$ IS is reverse saturation current …

Ladder Diagram

Wiring Diagram Definition Wiring diagrams tend to show a close representation of the interior position of electrical components in a control cabinet and/or circuit. Sometimes wire diagrams can closely represent a picture. The only difference is components are represented by electrical symbols whether they are NEMA standard or IEC standard …
