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.
