Definitions for "Voltage regulator"
Keywords:  constant, spite, sags, rotor, despite
A circuit capable of generating from a varying input voltage a constant output voltage to a varying load current.
An automatic electrical control device for maintaining a constant voltage supply to the primary of a welding transformer.
Used on all Ford cars and light trucks, these devices are designed to regulate the voltage output of an alternator in all climates and seasons. A temperature-sensitive transistor and diode network help compensate for different climates by increasing the voltage output in extreme cold weather and reducing it in extreme heat.
