Insert Key Button:This is used to insert key on the switch connected with battery. This key is only activated when the connection is perfect.
Choose Zener Diode: This combo box is used to select different zener diodes having different zener voltage
Series Resistance: Value of the Series Resistance can be directly input here.
Rheostat value: Rheostat can be controlled by using this slider
Load Resistance: Value of load resistance can be set or change by using this slider
Reset Button: To reset all the connections
Using the circuit diagram, identify the connections in the given platform. Connections are made as shown in the below diagram.
How to make connections in simulation ?
Click one end node of the battery and drag to the next position, where we want to connect the wire. Just like shown in the figures below:
(a) (b) (c)
Like this, make all the connections are perfect.

If the connections are correct, Insert Key option activated
Note: This is an ideal circuit. For a real circuit, there will be small variations in output voltage with varying input voltage or load resistance.
