The current limiting diode (CLD) or current regulating diode (CRD), despite its simplicity and distinct advantage over a conventional transistorized current source, has limited use.
In this circuit, the current limiting diode CLD regulates the current [I.
Comprising the booster circuit are the transistor, current limiting diode CLD and two resistors.
The project is exploring the use of the high-temperature resistant silicon carbide to make Current Limiting Diodes
(CLDs), a new kind of protection device which stands to reduce the amount of electrical energy traditional suppressors have to deal with during a lightning strike.
