In a circuit arrangement for regulating the load current of a power MOSFET, the drain-source voltage of the power MOSFET is imaged onto the input of a second MOSFET connected between a gate terminal and source terminal of the power MOSFET. When the input voltage exceeds the cut-off voltage, then the gate-source voltage at the power MOSFET is regulated back to a value that corresponds to the sum of the cut-off voltages of the second MOSFET and a third MOSFET. The gate terminals of third MOSFET and the power MOSFET are connected to one another.
