Is a voltage regulator AC or DC?
While voltage regulators are most commonly used for DC/DC power conversion, some can perform AC/AC or AC/DC power conversion as well.
How do you use a regulator in a circuit?
How do I use voltage regulators in a circuit?Always double check the “OUT” voltage with a multi-meter prior to connecting your circuit up. Most regulators have only 3 ports (IN/OUT/GND). Excess voltage is dissipated as heat by the regulator, so take care when designing and using circuits.May 1, 2015

What is voltage regulator and how it works?
A voltage regulator generates a fixed output voltage of a preset magnitude that remains constant regardless of changes to its input voltage or load conditions. It compares the output voltage with a precise reference voltage and adjusts the pass device to maintain a constant output voltage.
What are the three basic elements inside a standard voltage regulator?
As a linear voltage regulator, its main components are a pass transistor, error amplifier, voltage reference, and output power MOSFET. One input to the error amplifier, set by resistors R1 and R2, monitors a percentage of the output voltage. The other input is a stable voltage reference (VREF).
