Rectifier vs Zener vs Schottky Diode(Practical Differences)

A diode is a passive device that allows the flow of current in one direction only. But since there are so many types of a diode, it’s important to differentiate between them. And to know which one to use according to its requirement in our circuit. Given below is a detailed difference between diode, Zener diode, and Schottky Diode.
