Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: If you need precision current bias of power tubes...

I dislike the idea of applying this level of control with a current source at the cathode. There's no way to know what the grid-cathode voltage will actually be at the point where the source current setting is satisfied. It seems much more reasonable to apply a fixed voltage to the cathode with a regulator, and to adjust it within a known window for the correct bias current.
