It really is that simple.
Thank you Andrew.

You made it very clear as usual

But i have sme questions:

What is the relation between Efficiency and regulation ?

I have a 230V toroid with 89% Efficiency

Similarly the transformer regulation is stated for one output power only. The regulation applies to the ratio between maximum rated output power and zero output power. The efficiency of a transformer varies markedly over the output power range. __________________ regards Andrew T.

I know the lower the value the best, but to have a low percentage of regulation factor, the number of turns in the primary must also be very low. What should be the average number for a R-Core 120VA 220V to 30V TX ? __________________ RC

Found it post 369

I used a 9Vac secondary to give me the 5Vdc output and used a 6R8 resistor to achieve 198ma[1.34V drop] with 3 green led's. Everythings runs warm but you could hold your finger on things all day. Still sounds good.

I can't reach 5Vout?

Have I to connect 1K resistor in R303 (Vref area)?

Please, please add your stuff into the blog, so others have a place to look get an idea of what parts they need for a particular project. You can either add to the blog in a reply, or PM me the stuff, and I will edit it into the ugly main page...

 26th November 2011, 05:45 PM #748 AndrewT   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jul 2004 Location: Scottish Borders 30VA / 9Vac = 3.3Aac. Max continuous DC current from a capacitor input filter is 3.3 / 2 = 1.67Adc. Your 1A will use up 60% of the maximum continuous rating. 9Vac * sqrt(2) * ~1.3 (regulation) * 0.94 (mains low voltage) - bridge rectifier ~ 13.5Vdc. Vdrop to output voltage ~8.5V What's the problem? __________________ regards Andrew T.
