    I'm finishing up my electronics technology degree, and I'm trying to do my projects really well so I can use them as a sort of portfolio for future job interviews.

    Right now I am making a 24V regulated linear power supply with variable resistance. What would you suggest for my load that would showcase its functioning? In class we are using simple fans and it's really hard to see/hear the variability of output.

    Any ideas for me?

    A big wattage variable resistor with an ammeter in series, and a voltmeter across the output terminals. I usually use wired resistors for this.
