. Zener diode is used as

A: Half wave rectifier

B: Full wave rectifier

C: ac voltage stabilizer

D: dc voltage stabilizer

Best Answer

Correct Option is: (C) ac voltage stabilizer


The current in the zener diode changes according to wide range of values of load resistance, but the voltage across it does not change . 

So, this is the reason that the output voltage across the zener diode is a regulated voltage.

Hence, zener diode is used as voltage stabilizer.
