0-28V / 6A Regulated Variable Power Supply

Parts list:

TR = 2 x 15 volt (30volt total) 6+- amps
D1...D4 = four MR750 (MR7510) diodes (MR750 = 6 Ampere diode) or 2 x 4 1N5401 (1N5408) diodes.
F1 = 1 Amp
F2 = 10 amp
R1 = 2k2 2,5 Watt
R2 = 240 ohm
R3,R4 = 0.1 ohm 10 watt
R7 = 6k8 ohm
R8 = 10k ohm
R9 = 47 0.5 watt
R10 = 8k2
C1,C7,C9 = 47nF
C11 = 22nF
C2 = 4700uF/50v - 6800uF/50v
C3,C5 = 10uF/50v
C4,C6 = 100nF
C8 = 330uF/50v
C10 = 1uF/16v
D5 = 1N4148, 1N4448, 1N4151
D6 = 1N4001
D10 = 1N5401
D11 = LED
D7, D8, D9 = 1N4001
IC1 = LM317
T1, T2 = 2N3055
P1 = 5k
P2 = 47 Ohm or 220 Ohm 1 watt
P3 = 10k trimmer

This is definitely an simple to create power supply which has reliable, clear and regulator 0 to 28 Volt 6/8 Ampere output voltage. By using two 2N3055 transistor, you'll get two times the amount of electric current.

Although the 7815 power regulator is going to kick in on brief circuit, overload and thermal overheating, the fuses within the primary …

Lead Acid Battery Charger Schematic

This circuit gives an initial voltage of 2.5 V per cell at 25℃ to rapidly charge the battery. The charging current decreases as the battery is charging, and when the current drops to 180 mA, the charging circuit reduces the output voltage of 2.35 V per cell, leaving the battery in a fully charged state. This lower voltage prevents the battery from overcharging, which would shorten its life.

The LM301A compares the voltage drop across R1 with an 18 mV reference set by R2. The comparator’s output controls the voltage regulator, forcing it to produce the lower float voltage when the battery-charging current, passing through R1, drops below 180 mA. The 150 mV difference in between the charge and float voltages is certainly set by the ratio of R3 to R4. The LEDs present the state of the circuit.

Temperature compensation assists stop overcharging, especially when a battery goes through wide temperature changes whilst becoming charged. The LM334 temperature sensor ought to be placed near or on…
