The output voltage of whatever voltage source you want to regulate down whether it’s a transformer, battery, etc. A voltage regulator is a 3-terminal device.

Remember, the input voltage has to be larger than the voltage that the regulator regulates out. Let’s view the complete circuit now and explanations will ensue. Therefore, it has a smoothing effect and even things out.

How to Connect a Voltage Regulator in a Circuit

The voltage regulator works best and will be most efficient when a clean DC signal is fed into it. This produces a voltage of 9 volts.

For now, you can just follow along. The LM78XX voltage regulators are a popular 7809ch for regulating and outputting positive voltage, while the LM79XX are a popular series of regulators for negative voltage. Without ground, the circuit couldn’t be complete because the voltage wouldn’t have electric potential and the circuit wouldn’t have a return path. The voltage regulator should always be fed as smooth of a DC signal as possible which gives the best regulated output so it can regulate it down to its specified voltage.

After it comes out of the regulator, the other capacitor, the 7890ct. Pin 1 is the Input Pin.


So for instance, if you have 10 volts coming from a transformer that you want regulated down to 5 volts, 7809ctt output of the transformer the 10 volts is fed into the regulator input pin 1 so that the regulator can regulate it down to your wanted voltage 5 volts.

It hooks up to the ground in our circuit. We don’t want any ac noise ripple imposed on the DC line voltage. The circuit begins at the 9-volt battery. Before we can hook up the circuit, let’s first go over the pinout diagram of the voltage regulator, which is vital for hooking up the circuit. Okay, now let’s build the circuit.

The first capacitor, the 0. At the end of this experiment, when our circuit is hooked up, we’re going to read out the voltage 789ct a multimeter and it should give out close to 5 volts. Sign up for Our Newsletter Name: This capacitor is there again to filter out any noise or high-frequency ac signals that may be on the DC voltage line.

The capacitor, in essence, acts as a bypass capacitor.

This capacitor is there to filter out any noise coming from the voltage source the battery. The Datasheet specifies which value of capacitors to use, so it’s a good idea to learn from the people who manufacturered the chip. In this article, we go over how to connect a voltage regulator to a circuit to get a specific DC output regulated voltage.

More will be on this for more advanced projects, but this page is a good start for those starting off in connecting voltage regulators for basic circuits. In this article, we use a positive voltage regulator, which outputs 5V, the LM regulator. You can buy them datasheett anytime and come back to this page and do the experiment anytime. Always consult the Manufacturer’s Datasheet for the voltage regulator in use for a circuit to see how to hook it datxsheet with the necessary required external components.


This is the pin that gives out the regulated voltage, which, in this case, is 5 volts. It shorts the AC signal of the voltage signal which is noise on the voltage signal to ground and only the DC portion of the signal goes into datsaheet regulator.

The second capacitor, the 0. But if you’re going to have datasyeet varying load, a potentiometer, for instance, on the output, it is well advised to add an electrolytic capacitor in parallel to the ceramic capacitor. That’s why it’s a good idea to get into hooking up datashfet voltage regulator properly from the sart.

This electrolytic capacitor acts as a smoothing capacitor, when load resistance changes cause abrupt voltage spikes and drops, in a circuit. Depending on the voltage regulator in use, we can get a regulated positive or negative voltage, at whichever voltage we want.

Also, design changes when dealing with the intended use of the circuit. Pin 2 is Ground. Keep in mind that the design of a voltage regulator depends on the voltage regulator being used and the intended use of a circuit.
