The VTSE solar engine

Posted on Jun 15, 2012

The VTSE uses the popular 1381 chip and that is its main advantage. The potentiometer (or two fixed resistors) connects one leg between the output and input of the 1381 and the other leg to the supply voltage. These resistors acts like a voltage divider when the SE is off and the 1381 output is low. In that case, the voltage that appears at the 1381 input is determined by the ratio of the pot or the two resistors and is usually set for 2 times rated 1381 voltage.
