12V 30A Regulated Power Supply

Very high current regulated power supply. This circuit require a transformer which have output 24v / 35A. It should be an expensive circuit :(
12V 30A Power Supply circuit diagram

Notes:
The input transformer is likely to be the most expensive part of the entire project. As an alternative, a couple of 12 Volt car batteries could be used. The input voltage to the regulator must be at least several volts higher than the output voltage (12V) so that the regulator can maintain its output. If a transformer is used, then the rectifier diodes must be capable of passing a very high peak forward current, typically 100amps or more. The 7812 IC will only pass 1 amp or less of the output current, the remainder being supplied by the outboard pass transistors. As the circuit is designed to handle loads of up to 30 amps, then six TIP2955 are wired in parallel to meet this demand. The dissipation in each power transistor is one sixth of the total load, but adequate heat sinking is still required. Maximum load current will generate maximum dissipation, so a very large heat sink is required. In considering a heat sink, it may be a good idea to look for either a fan or water cooled heat sink. In the event that the power transistors should fail, then the regulator would have to supply full load current and would fail with catastrophic results. A 1 amp fuse in the regulators output prevents a safeguard. The 400mohm load is for test purposes only and should not be included in the final circuit. A simulated performance is shown below:

LM317T Voltage Regulator Circuit with Pass Transistor

This is the schematic diagram of voltage regulator circuit with pass transostor. The regulator is based regulator IC of LM317T. The LM317T output current can be raised by utilizing an additional power transistor (on circuit, it is 2N2955) to share a portion of the total current. The amount of current sharing is established with a resistor placed in series with the LM317 input and a resistor placed in series with the emitter of the pass transistor.


In the above scheme design, the pass transistor will start conducting when the LM317 current reaches about 1 ampere, due to the voltage drop across the 0.7 ohm resistor. Current limiting happens at about 2 amperes for the LM317 which will drop about 1.4 volts across the 0.7 ohm resistor and make a 700 millivolt drop across the 0.3 ohm emitter resistor. Thus the total current is limited to about 2+ (.7/.3) = 4.3 amperes.

Unregulated Dual Polarity Power Supply

This is the schematic diagram of Unregulated Dual Polarity power supply.


Unlike 78xx and 79xx dual polarity regulated power sypply and LM317/LM337 dual polarity regulated power supply which have limited current output and voltage (have limited supply power), this unregulated power supply will give you more power.

This kind of circuit usually used for power amplifier which need high supply power, or as high current lead acid battery charger (single polarity only).

The component value is flexible refer to your needs. For example: if you need power supply for 100W amplifier, then the component value are:
Transformer: 3A minimum (center tap)
Diodes: 3A diode (1N5401, 1N5402, 1N5403 etc)Electrolytic capacitor: 4x minimum of 4700uF/50V (the higher is better - check the capacitor voltage, change it for higher voltage. example: use 63V capacitors for 45V power supply output.)

Solid State Tesla Coil with 555 Timer

Here the circuit diagram of solid state tesla coil with 555 timer.

Single transistor flyback driver induced a lot of complications on account of it really is operating principle. I received e-mails from those who had been unable to obtain it functional even after they are positive that their flyback and transistor is Okay. Moreover, because it is resonance frequency is determined by each individual a part of the method, any time you seek to draw an arc in the transformer, it alterations substantially in a lot of the circumstances. Simply because the operating frequency is vital for your security criteria, (each for mine and electrical power transistor's), I determined to generate it run on a continuous frequency and developed up yet another easy circuit, attempting to keep within the specified limits in the 555 timer.
