I have a load that drives current 1.8A[Max] @26V DC. It has to be supplied with a DC voltage of 30V[max]. I have a DC voltage 36V coming from another Power Supply Unit.
In order to supply a constant DC voltage of 30V to the load from 36V DC supply, would it be okay if I use a zener diode and a resistor as shown in the circuit or just a resistor would be sufficient? If yes, how to choose their values to drive this load. If not, what would be the best way to have a constant 30V DC?
I'm more concerned about the power rating.
Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
