I am looking to understand this circuit better. The main question is:
- Is it true that the battery will start draining and stop when its Voltage is 12.16V (D1 Zener voltage) and will not continue to drop voltage?
- The simulator tells me that around 12.16 Volts the current will be Zero. Is this real, that the circuit current really becomes Zero at around 12.16V in real life?
Something is telling me that the simulations are too theoretical :)
Also, there are Zener Diodes of almost all voltages, right? or does the industry limit the availability of these?
The simulators all have DC Sweep but all are from 0 to a positive voltage not, for example, from 24 Volts to 10Volts. How can I simulate a voltage dropping as in a battery in a simulator?
