I have installed many standard silicon type of diodes in ZW transformers. All of them have worked out without any problems. Now, I have been reading that I may have a better results if I were to use a Zener Diode instead. One of the posts that I have read said to use a 1N3311B 50W 12V diode. Does anyone have any info on this diode as installed in a ZW Transformer.
A zener will behave exactly the same as a regular diode in the forward direction. That means when the anode is more positive than the cathode current will be allowed to flow from anode to cathode once you get past the knee voltage, roughly 0.6 to 1.0 volts. This is often referred to as the diode voltage drop. In the reverse direction where the anode is less positive than the cathode both the zener and regular diode will block current flow. So no current will flow from cathode to anode. The...
