Zener Diode for Simscape.

65 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to get an Zener Diode from Simscape module. I know we can get the Zener Diode from Simulink by typing "power_zener" in command. However, I cannot find any way to connect that zenner to my Simscape-typed circuit. Thank you so much for helping me.

The power_zener uses the Specialized Technology library but, the your model is built using the Simscape library.
To use a diode as zener, change the Reverse breakdown voltage parameter of the diode and specify the Zener resistance. Please see this.

Thank you so much for your help. I change the Reverse breakdown voltage and Zener Resistance following the datasheets of my zener 1N4774A, and I am having the perfect result!
Again, Big Thank!
