Transistorized Voltage Regulator Why use a transistorized voltage regulator? If we use a half or a full-wave rectifier we can convert an AC voltage in a DC one. This converted voltage is unregulated, because the output voltage is not constant and can change due to variations of the load value. To reduce these variations we connect […]
Current Limiter for Voltage Regulator using Transistor
If the current required in the load exceeds the maximum allowed, the voltage regulator can be damaged. To avoid this problem it is necessary to have over current protection.
12V Power Supply using Zener and 741 Op. Amp.
This 12V Power Supply has, as its main characteristic, a low output impedance. This is a very desirable feature in voltage sources and is achieved with a large open loop gain that the operational amplifier has.
How to make 12V 1A power supply using zener diode and transistors?
This 12V 1A power supply using zener diode and transistors allows us to obtain an output of approximately 11.4 volts with a very small percentage variation for a wide variety of loads.
12V to 9V DC Converter Circuit Diagram (PCB)
This 12V to 9V DC converter is very useful for powering 9V DC devices in a car that uses 12V battery. The maximum current consumption allowed by this circuit is 0.8 amps.
Transformerless Power Supply Circuit We will use a zener diode among other elements to acheive the Transformerless Power Supply circuit. This means that our power supply will give a limited range current value (it will be a maximum and a minimum posible current that the power supply circuit can deliver). This power suply must be permanently connected to the circuit as a whole unit. […]
