Low ripple power supply


Posted on Aug 17, 2012

This circuit may be used where a high current is required with a low ripple voltage (such as in a high powered class AB amplifier when high quality reproduction is necessary), Ql, Q2, and R2 may be regarded as a power darlington transistor. ZDl and Rl provide a reference voltage at the base of Ql. ZDl should be chosen thus: ZDl = Von-1

C2 can be chosen for the degree of smoothness as its value is effectively multiplied by the combined gains of Q1/Q2, if 100 µF is chosen for C2, assuming minimum hfe for Ql and Q2, C = 100 x 15(Q1) x 25(Q2) = 37,000 µf.
