Ok! thank Massimo!

Hi Salas

I bypassed the 10r R1 with a 47r and am now reading 250mA between the smoothing cap and the shunt... (I am testing the shunt without any load).

Is this the correct way to measure shunt´s working current ?

Regards
Ricardo

@RCruz
R1=10 Ohm, bypassed with 47 Ohm. Total resistance = 8.24 Ohm

Measure voltage drop across this paralleled resistor. Divide voltage with resistance to get current. For 250mA voltage drop should be approx. 2.06V

My measurements are 8.39r on R1, 1.99Vdrop on R1 so I calculated 0.237A... but measuring the current flow in the shunt input I get 0.25A.....All this without loading.

How can I explain the current diferences ?

Probably

I settled for 10r//27r
Vdrop R1 = 1.964v
Current should be 265mA.

These are the measurements on the 4wire shunt I am now going to try !

It gets hot.... 76ºC on the power mosfet but I have good sinks.

I always liked those green perfboards you use. I never seen them in stores here. You know, the sinks are rather small for the current. The IRFPs are dogs though.
