Difference between Series and Shunt Voltage Regulator
|S.No.||Series Voltage Regulator||Shunt Voltage Regulator|
|1||The regulator is connected in series with the load.||The regulator is connected in parallel with the load.|
|2||At high load currents, it does not give good voltage regulation.||It gives good voltage regulation at high load currents.|
|3||The output DC voltages are not constant.||The output voltage is constant.|
|4||Has good efficiency for higher load currents.||Comparatively has less efficiency.|
|5||The regulator is appropriate for heavy loads.||Appropriate for light loads.|
