Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Circuit Project: Solar Panel Voltage Regulator

Our energy-hungry and environmentally aware society has been slow to make good use of the sun’s “free” power. But now it’s finally taking off. Using the sun’s heat directly, for cooking and other applications, is already a common and popular technology in countries that have good weather. Hot-water panels are… Read more »

Switchable 6V, 9V, and 12V Linear Voltage Regulator

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Switchable 6V, 9V, and 12V Linear Voltage Regulator

  We can build a multiple voltage power supply 6, 9, and 12V  (AC-DC Adapter) with the circuit shown in the following schematic diagram.  Not only provide multiple voltage output with single voltage supply, this circuit add the benefit of regulating the voltage for better stability. A transformer with rectifier… Read more »

Low-Drop-Out (LDO) Low-Voltage Linear Regulator Using NCP2860 IC

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Low-Drop-Out (LDO) Low-Voltage Linear Regulator Using NCP2860 IC

This low drop out (LDO) voltage regulator need only few components, with very low noise and very low drop-out voltage. The circuit illustrated in the schematic diagram below gives a fixed 2.77 volt output, but this output voltage can be adjusted using two additional resistors. This circuit capable to supply… Read more »

High Efficiency Switch Mode 3.3V 5A Step-Down Converter

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on High Efficiency Switch Mode 3.3V 5A Step-Down Converter

This switch mode step-down converter has very good efficiency, up to 94% can be obtained. This switch mode regulator uses LTC1266-3.3 controller with external N-Channel power mosfet, and need only a 5uH inductor because it uses high frequency switching. Here is the schematic diagram of this switch mode step down… Read more »

Transformerless, Switch Mode Boost Regulator, A Step-Up Converter

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Transformerless, Switch Mode Boost Regulator, A Step-Up Converter

Using this switch mode regulator circuit, you can get a stable 12 volt output (500mA) although you just have 4,3 – 10V power supply. You can even boost a 3.5V input to 12V if the load draws only 100 mA or less. This switch mode voltage regulator use LTC1266 IC… Read more »

Transformerless Voltage Booster Circuit: A DC-DC Step-Up Switching Regulator Using Transistors

Schematic Diagrams      Comments Off on Transformerless Voltage Booster Circuit: A DC-DC Step-Up Switching Regulator Using Transistors

A DC-to-DC step-up converter is traditionally implemented using transformer, working by converting the DC voltage to AC Voltage, step-up it using transformer, then rectify and filter the transformer’s output to  get a higher DC voltage. Using a switching method, we can step-up a voltage without a transformer. We just need… Read more »
