2000V High Voltage Low Current Power Supply

2000V High Voltage Low Current Power Supply circuit diagram

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 enamelled copper wire wound on former is placed in it.

Here the transistor winding:

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.
