Question

# The plate resistance and amplification factor of a triode are 10kΩ and 20. The tube is operated at plate voltage 250 V and grid voltage −7.5 V. The plate current is 10 mA. (a) To what value should the grid voltage be changed so as to increase the plate current to 15 mA? (b) To what value should the plate voltage be changed to take the plate current back to 10 mA?

Solution

## Given: Plate resistance, ${r}_{\mathrm{p}}=10\mathrm{K\Omega }$ Amplification factor, $\mu =20$ Plate voltage, ${V}_{\mathrm{p}}=240\mathrm{V}$ Grid voltage, ${V}_{\mathrm{G}}=7.5\mathrm{V}$ ${I}_{\mathrm{p}}=10\mathrm{mA}$ (a) Transconductance, $\delta {V}_{G}=\frac{\delta {I}_{\mathrm{p}}}{{g}_{\mathrm{m}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\delta {V}_{G}=\frac{\left(15×{10}^{-3}-10×{10}^{-3}\right)}{\mu \mathit{/}{r}_{\mathrm{p}}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\delta {V}_{G}=\frac{5×{10}^{-3}}{20/10×{10}^{-3}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\delta {V}_{G}=\frac{5×{10}^{-3}}{2×{10}^{-3}}=\frac{5}{2}=2.5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{V}_{\mathrm{G}}=+2.5-7.5=-5.0\mathit{}\mathrm{V}$ ${r}_{\mathrm{p}}={\left(\frac{\delta {V}_{\mathrm{p}}}{\delta {I}_{\mathrm{p}}}\right)}_{{V}_{g}=\mathrm{Constant}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒{10}^{4}=\frac{\delta {V}_{\mathrm{p}}}{\left(10×{10}^{-3}-15×{10}^{-3}\right)}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒\delta {V}_{\mathrm{p}}=-{10}^{4}×5×{10}^{-3}=-50\mathrm{V}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\therefore {V}_{\mathrm{p}}\text{'}-{V}_{\mathrm{p}}\mathit{}=-50\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}⇒{V}_{\mathrm{p}}\text{'}=-50+{V}_{\mathrm{p}}=200\mathrm{V}$
