EEVblog 1482 – Mains Capacitor Zener Regulator Circuit

A follow up to the previous video on repairing the heater. A viewer asked how the capacitor diode rectifier gave a 24V output. The key is in the zener regulator, so this vidoe looks at how mains powered zener voltage regulators work, and their limitations. X class capacitor and self healing.
