Make sure it will allow 20V headroom to the regulators.
Sorry for my equivocation,
Two transformers Hammond model 369AX, 40 Va Power and 250V and 115miliamperios SEC.
I was wrong with a transformer I have for other applications.

Best Regards.

Those will give ~330VDC with solid state bridge rectification and loaded by the reg's CCS.
You should consider enough RC to drop about 100V @ CCS current consideration level before the regs for your +/-200V that I saw on your posted drawing.

True, but he could also use another model 363AX, that is 200V 115 Milliamp, and once past the bridge rectifier would give us about 280V.
This model would be more advisable?

More like 265V before RC, yes more advisable for less drop & heat, also smaller wattage R in the RC.

Arrange for ~220VDC input to the regs all things considered.

I measured last night, with a 22K/50W parallel with one 10K/50W, the voltage across was 286V on start up; and went to 288V after 3-5 minutes (the 10K also gets a bit hot).

Next week, I will remove the 22K and the 10K, and connect to test the SSHV2....

Could you please explain how you can calculate and predict that when I remove one 10K from the dummy load I used before, that we will get 286V??

Cheers,

King

Yes, I know....Ohm's law must be part of it.....but with Ohm's law, to calculate the V, you need to be given R and I.....given only R, how can you predict V and I??...what is the logic behind it???

You gave some ball park data in #3270.

yes...my question should be: how could I use those ball park data to predict even a ball park figure for V and I given only R.....
