I understand that a Mosfet is a voltage controlled current device - but I was a bit surprised that the circuit below didn't yield a higher voltage at the Mosfet source pin (load).
If I were to use two voltage sources with a common ground, and supply a Mosfet with an ideal 32 volt supply and set the gate to 16 volts:
- Why is the voltage at the source-pin so low?
- How might I increase the voltage at the source-pin?
Note: I do not want to use the 32v supply for the gate because the 32v supply will be under heavy load and will encounter voltage swings of 2 - 10v.
