How to Reduce Your Voltage From 240 to 208?

Use a "step down" transformer to reduce voltage from 240 to 208. Transformers are electromagnetic devices that transfer energy through mutual inductance. Transformers have two inductive windings, a... Read More »

How do I reduce voltage using resistors?

Insert a resistor in your circuit, in series with the component that needs less voltage. The resistor must go in between the voltage source and the component. Putting the resistor in parallel with ... Read More »

How to Reduce Battery Voltage?

Batteries don't come in every size. Some might deliver one and a half volts, some might deliver six and some might even deliver 12 volts, but no batteries are made for, say, five and a half volts, ... Read More »

How do I reduce voltage with resistors?

Voltage Divider CircuitThe easiest way to reduce a voltage is to implement a resistive voltage divider circuit. By connecting two resistors R1 and R2 in series with the voltage source Vs, the volta... Read More »
