electronic circuit diagram

component parts list:

R1= 10Kohm
R2= 1 ohm 5W
R3= 3.9 ohms 1W
R4= 6.8Kohm 1W
R5= 390 ohms 1W
R6= 100Kohm 0.5W
R7= 1.2Kohm 1W
R8= 1.8Kohm 0.5W
R9= 3.3Kohm 0.5W
RV1= 470 ohms pot.

Q3= BC303 or BC461
D1....4= Bridge 15A
D5= LED RED 5mm
C1-2-4= 4700uF 100V
C3-5= 100nF 250V MKT
D6-7= 10V 1W Zener
D8-9-10= IN4007
Q1= 2N3055 on heatsink
T1= 230Vac / 55V 3A
Q2= BD162 or BD243 or BD543

It 's a circuit that can give in his exit + 40V until + 60V 3A, with simultaneous stabilization. The materials that use is very simple and will not exist difficulties in the manufacture, is enough you are careful certain points:
  1. For output voltages smaller of + 50V until + 40V, the Q1 is hot enough, so that it needs one big heatsink.
  2. For output voltages bigger of + 50V up to + 70V, the stabilization is not satisfactory.

Conclusion: ideal output voltage is + 45V until + 60V. In the circuit potensiometer RV1, is used in order to we change the output voltage between + 40V until + 70V, we can however and perhaps it should, him we replace with two constant resistors, when finished the regulation, in the desirable price. The reason is, that with time is presented change of output voltage, up to 3V, with connected potensiometer.

ATTENTION!!! The positive exit correspond in point [ A ] and the exit of 0V in point [ B ], which should not be connected in the ground.


About Power Supply
A power supply is a device that supplies electrical energy to one or more electric loads. The term of "power supply" is most commonly applied to devices that convert one form of electrical energy to another, though it may also refer to devices that convert another form of energy (e.g., mechanical, chemical, solar) to electrical energy.
A power supply may be implemented as a discrete, stand-alone device or as an integral device that is hardwired to its load. In the latter case, for example, low voltage DC power supplies are commonly integrated with their loads in devices such as computers and household electronics. More explanation about power supply can be found at wikipedia.org

This is the tutorial about "How to build an AC to DC power supply ". The video tutorial covers the basics of diodes, bridge rectifiers, and how to build simple unregulated AC to DC power supplies than can handle a few mA up to several Amps.
