# What is practical voltage source and practical current source?

## What is practical voltage source and practical current source?

The purpose of a voltage source provides current to a load rather than voltage. Ideal current sources are providing the exact same current to any resistance connected to it. Where practical current sources may vary current resistance.

**What is practical voltage sources?**

A practical voltage source is one which we find around us. The terminal voltage across its terminals are not constant rather it varies with output current. Internal resistance of practical voltage source has some finite value. Examples of voltage sources are Batteries, Generators etc. …

### What is the practical example of current source?

The output part of the simple current mirror is an example of such a current source widely used in integrated circuits. The common base, common gate and common grid configurations can serve as constant current sources as well. A JFET can be made to act as a current source by tying its gate to its source.

**How are voltage and current sources represented?**

Real voltage sources can be represented as ideal voltage sources in series with a resistance r, the ideal voltage source having zero resistance. Real current sources can be represented as ideal current sources in parallel with a resistance r, the ideal current source having infinite resistance.

## What is the difference between voltage source and current source?

Current source means a power source which produces a constant current irrespective of connected load . voltage source means a power source which produces a constant voltage irrespective of load .

**What is a practical voltage source Mcq?**

Voltage Source MCQ Question 1 Detailed Solution Practical voltage source: A practical voltage source consists of an ideal voltage source (VS) in series with internal resistance (RS) as follows. When an ideal voltage source and an ideal current source in series, the combination has an ideal current sources property.

### Does voltage add in series?

Remember the voltage increases when batteries are in series, but with batteries in parallel this is not the case. When two or more batteries are placed in parallel, the voltage in the circuit is the same as each individual battery. When batteries are connected in series, the voltage increases.

**What is an example of voltage source?**

A voltage source is a two-terminal device whose voltage at any instant of time is constant and is independent of the current drawn from it. The example of voltage sources is batteries and alternators.

## What are practical sources?

Definition: A practical current source is a two terminal device having some resistance connected across its terminals. Unlike ideal current source, the output current of practical source depends on the voltage of the source. The more this voltage, the lesser will be the current.
