Question about a VR screen supply
Default Re: Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Ok how about this, 1k on gate and screen. Now, for the leg to the VR tubes, would you calculate the resistor like normal to set the current through the tubes?
Yep, since FET's gate does not draw a current at all.
Nothing in the universe is perfect. The ideal things are the ones that are most optimal. Optimization criteria, what matters. When I hear "No Compromise Design", I want to take a sledgehammer and test how impact-proof it is.

I've used this design with good results for a screen grid regulator.

Wouldn't it be better to bias the Mosfet with a resistor from source to common, so that it always conducts some current?


edit: speaking of VR tube with follower here.
