2000V High Voltage Low Current Power Supply

This is a high voltage, low current power supply circuit which will give you high power voltage about 2000V output from 15VDC input.

A high voltage power supply can be a really beneficial source which could be properly utilized in a lot of applications like biasing of gas-discharge tubes and radiation detectors and so on. Such a power supply could also be utilized for protection of property by electric charging of fences. Here the electric current requirement is of the order of several microamps. In such an application, high voltage would basically exist in between a ‘live’ wire and ground. When this ‘live’ wire is touched, the discharge starts through body resistance and it provides a non-lethal but deterrent shock to an intruder. The circuit is built around a single transistorised blocking oscillator. An vital element in this circuit could be the transformer. It could be fabricated on quite easily available ferrite cores. Two ‘E’ sections of the core are joined face-to-face after the…

15V Switching Power Supply Circuit

Switching power supply circuit, give you 15V DC output with 1A electric current. It will be 15 watt power output. Looks like this circuit come from Rusia, some components type might not available in your location, you should find the substitude of component parts first.

LT1086 Negative Voltage Regulator

This is the efficient negative voltage regulator circuit built based IC LT1086.

One way to provide good negative-voltage regulation is with a low-dropout positive-voltage regulator operating from a well-isolated secondary winding of switch-mode circuit transformer. The technique works with any positive-voltage regulator, although highest efficiency occurs with low-dropout types.

Under all loading conditions, the minimum voltage difference between the regulator VIN and V0UT pins must be at least 1.5V, the LT1086's low-dropout voltage. If this requirement isn't met, the output falls out of regulation. Two programming resistors, R1 and R2, set the output voltage to 12 V, and the LT1086's servo the voltage between the output and its adjusting (ADJ) terminals to 1.25 V. Capacitor C1 improves ripple rejection, and protection diode D1 eliminates common-load problems.

Since a secondary winding is galvanically isolated, a regulator's 12 V output can be referenced to ground. Theref…
