Split Power Supply Circuit 22V DC






Split Power Supply Circuit 22V DC

This is the circuit diagram of split power supply circuit which will give a regulated DC voltage (+)22V ; GND and (-)22V. This is an old regulated power supply design which built using active components of dioda zeners and transistors to give regulated output.

This is a very basic voltage regulator circuit, without any additional features such as foldback current limiting, and doesn't have the same performance as an IC regulator such as 78xx series.

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.
