Adjustable 1.3-22V Regulated Power Supply

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Adjustable 1.3-22V Regulated Power Supply

Want a regulated voltage
that can be adjusted to suit your application? This Adjustable Power
Supply is small, easy to build and can be adapted to produce a fully
regulated voltage ranging from 1.3V to 22V at currents up to 1A. This
circuit come from SiliconChip Magazine

There are many fixed-voltage IC regulators available and these can
be had with 5V, 6V 8V, 9V, 12V & 15V outputs. But what if you want a
voltage output that does not fit into one of the standard ranges or if
you want to be able to easily adjust this output voltage? An adjustable
regulator is the answer – one that can be set to provide the exact
voltage you require.

This Adjustable Power Supply comprises a small PC board that
utilises a 3-terminal regulator. It does not have too many other
components – in fact, there are just three diodes, three capacitors, a
resistor and a trimpot to set the output voltage from the regulator. The
circuit is based on an LM317T adjustable voltage regulator. D1 provides
reverse polarity protection while P1 sets the output voltage.
