A bipolar high voltage power supply is a device that uses doped semiconductors to transmit an electrical current. A transistor is employed to amplify an electrical transmission as it passes through the device, and manipulate its structure according to the system's needs. This device is comprised of three sections that work together to regulate the flow of electricity.

At the center of the bipolar high voltage power supply, there is the base semiconductor. This is situated between two terminals, known as the emitter, and the collector. The user can vary the flow between the base and the emitter. This in turn affects the automatic flow between the emitter and the collector. The regulation of this emitter/controller flow is responsible for the overall amplification of the entire current.

Bipolar High Voltage Power Supply Components

A bipolar high voltage power supply is essentially a current amplifier. The unique function of this particular device is its bipolar use of diodes. These diodes dual-directional routes, but not simultaneously. This allows for excellent control. The bipolar diodes allow the manipulation of an amplified current in one direction, while simultaneously blocking movement in the opposite direction. This ultimately leads to a structured increase in the overall power of the current.

The desired effect of these devices is to facilitate extremely fast, high voltage controlled currents. This makes a bipolar high voltage power supply of great use in endeavors as diverse as computer RAM functions, modulation of radio waves, diffusion studies, and cutting edge medial technology.
