Word forms: (regular plural) voltage regulators
( Electrical engineering : Circuits , Electrical power )
When used with a voltage regulator, the compensator can automatically run overexcited at times of high load and underexcited
at light loads.
The low voltage measurement is not really necessary, but is useful when the battery
is low, so you can be sure the voltage regulator is still doing its job.
A voltage regulator is a circuit that is connected between the power source and a load, that provides
a constant voltage despite variations in input voltage or output load.
