Why resistor is used in Snubber circuit

Electrical Engineering XYZ MCQ

Resistor is used in snubber circuit so as:

  1. To minimize the discharging current
  2. To minimize the loss
  3. To minimize the charging current
  4. All of these

Correct answer: 1. To minimize the discharging current

Explanation: When a switch is opened, there can be a rapid discharge of energy from the circuit. By incorporating a resistor in the snubber circuit, it helps to limit the rate at which energy is dissipated, thus minimizing the discharging current and reducing stress on the components.
