Switching Power Supply Circuits
12 Volt, 10 Amp Switching Power Supply
The switching power supply, shown in the schematic, provides 12 volts, at 10 amps, maximum, using a discrete transistor regulator with an op-amp functioning as a comparator in the feedback circuit. The supply was constructed in 1984 and is variable frequency, as opposed to the pulse width modulator (PWM) controllers used today.
Reduce EMI in Switching PS
Power supplies that operate at a fixed frequency have their largest EMI emission at this fundamental, fixed frequency. Emissions also occur at multiples of the switching frequency but at diminished amplitudes. The simple circuit in Figure 1 makes the switching converter operate over multiple frequencies rather than one, thereby reducing the time...
LT3439l low noise switching architecture
Figure 1 shows the LT®3439, one of several low noise switchers available from Linear Technology. Ultralow noise and low EMI are achieved by controlling both the output switch voltage and current slew rates. This switching architecture is particularly well suited to noise-sensitive systems such as industrial sensing and control, data...
Linear supply uses switch-mode regulation
In Figure 1 , a basic and versatile 5V supply uses a zener diode and an emitter-follower transistor. You must calculate and design the transformer such that Q1 is close to saturation at low mains voltages and nominal output current. Additionally, you must choose R1 to ensure proper bias for the zener diode.
Soft-Start Controller for Switching Power Supplies
Start-up is a stressful time for the power driver section of a switching power supply. Because the output voltage is initially zero, the feedback error initially jumps to its maximum. The large feedback error then drives the loop filter to its limit, which drives the power switching transistors in the driver section of the power supply at...
555 timer as a switch-mode power supply
Most switch-mode power supplies rely on a PWM (pulse-width-modulated) output that is controlled via voltage feedback. A 555-timer IC can inexpensively perform PWM. The circuit in Figure 1 shows how to turn a 555 PWM circuit into an switch-mode power supply with only one simple equation. The design uses two 555s. IC1, in astable mode, triggers...
Single IC, 5 Output Switching Power Supply
This Design Note describes how to generate five separate output voltages using the LTC®1538-AUX, a dual synchronous switching regulator controller with internal circuitry adaptable to many additional configurations.
Switching regulator forms constant-current source
Many applications require current sources rather than voltage sources. When you need a high-current source, using a linear regulator is inadvisable, because of the high power dissipation in the series resistor. To solve the wasted-power problem, you can use a switch-mode regulator. The circuit of Figure 1 uses IC1, an LM2576 adjustable...
Self switching Power Supply
One of the main features of the regulated power supply circuit being presented is that though fixed-voltage regulator LM7805 is used in the circuit, its output voltage is variable. This is achieved by connecting a potentiometer between common terminal of regulator IC and ground. For every 100-ohm increment in the in-circuit value of the...

Advanced Power Switcher
If you`re an effects builder or repairer, you know by now that it`s a good idea to protect the circuitry in the effect from the consequences of a reversed battery. While many older effects can withstand a momentary reversal, some more modern components can be damaged if you accidentally touch the battery contacts the wrong way during...
Pulsed Charger for Lead Acid batteries (NE555)
The object is to get the cell voltage high enough for the sulphate to dissolve without boiling or melting the battery. This is achieved by applying higher voltage for shorter periods and let the battery rest for a while. The pulses on short range is about 0.5s on / 3s off and the long pulse range is 1.4s on / 2s off. These times can vary...
12V 40A Switching Power Supply
The present trend is to use ever higher frequencies. But by doing so it becomes more difficult to filter out the RF noise inevitably generated by the switching. So I decided to stay at a low switching frequency of only 25 kHz for the full cycle, which due to the frequency doubling effect of the rectifiers results in 50 kHz on the output filter....

Soft Start For Switching Power Supply
Switching power supply whose output voltage is appreciably lower than its input voltage has an interesting property: the current drawn by it is smaller than its output current. However, the input power (UI) is, of course, greater than the output power. There is another aspect that needs to be watched: when the input voltage at switch-on is too low
low power switching regulator
This circuit is a simple battery-powered switching regulator provides 5V out from a 9V source with 80% efficiency and 50-mA output capability. When Q1 is oon, its collector voltage rises, forcing current trhough the iinductor. The output voltage rises, causing A1`s output to rise. Q1 cutts off and the output drops low enough for A1 to turn Q1.
