EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT OF UJT
THEORY
UJT is the Uni Junction Transistor. It is a three terminal device. They are: a) emitter b) base1 c)base2.The equalent circuit is shown with the circuit diagram. So there are two resistors. One is a variable resistor and other is a fixed resistor. The ratio of internal resistances is referred as intrinsic standoff ratio (η).It is defined as the ratio of the variable resistance to the total resistance. Due to the existing pn junction, there will be a voltage drop. If we apply a voltage to the emitter, the device will not turn on until the input voltage is less than the drop across the diode plus the drop at the variable resistance R1.When the device is turned on holes moves from emitter to base resulting in a current flow. Due to this sudden increase in charge concentration in base1 region conductivity increases. This causes a drop at base1.This region in the graph is known as negative resistance region. If we further increase the emitter voltage the device undergoes saturation. So a UJT has 3 operating regions:
 cut off region
 negative resistance region
 saturation region
PROCEDURE
1. Set up the circuit as shown in the circuit diagram
2. Give the power supply.
3. By varying the input voltage, take the values of voltage and current values
4. Plot the graph

nice site
could not to see any graph or circuit diagram
please response
cud nto see any graph or circuit diagram
Hi friends it should be 2N2646, which is an UJT. 2N2446 is a germanium bipolar transistor which has become obsolete long back.
you can getthe application circuit and application data from the following site.
