SMPS number of turns
 
I made this flyback for tube preamp.

http://www.dodaj.rs/f/2y/QG/4sjNFbVe...u-lampu-tu.png


Problem is I have low voltage.

What I did:

- Input 16V

Primar:

- 8 turns of 3x1mm diameter wire

Secundar:

- 13 turns, should give 20V, it gives 11V, with 10k pot at max
- 110 turns, should give 200V, it gives 130V, with 10k pot at max

I did try other orientation of diode, it gave much less voltage. PCB wiring and mass is made properly for high frequency.

I can add more turns, but it doesn't make sense bearing in mind many calculations I saw in books and schematics.

What is going on?

You didn't provide what are probably the most important data in this case: the core parameters and properties: Ae (effective area), material, Lf, air gap, etc.
That's probably where your problems hide

Its EI-33 core form 350W ATX.

Gap?

Are the windings closely interleaved?

Is IRF510 big enough for the amount of power you intend to draw, and is the 0.22 ohm shunt resistor small enough as well?

There should be a resistor in series with the 0.01 capacitor between COMP and FB, try 10k.

You could increase the value of 470k to compensate ?

However you need to gap the core.
At least a 1mm gap is required to stop the transformer saturating.
Also if the transformer gets hot the gap will again help stop saturation.

Yes.

IRF510 is cold totaly.

100k is there, I put it.

What to put? 1M?

Core is cold.

There is no gap. Should I make it on all 3 pillars of 'E'? To put 1mm paper between?

what is the total current at output you need?
I not happy, just on preamp, with this topology. yes it is regulated but not in a good way. better unregulated in this case but very stable,low noise.

vasko 14th November 2012 12:06 AM

It's PCL8x preamp. So let's say 16V 0.5A for 2 filaments, and about 5W for anodes.

Let me see schematic what you have in mind?

Let us suppose the flyback operates just in critical mode, this means the On time will be 7s, the peak current will reach 4.8A, requiring a primary inductance of 17H.
If the material is typical of its application, the core will have a Al of ~=4000.
With 8t, this results in an inductance of 256H. Way too much.
For 4.8A^ and 0.35T^, the minimum number of turns required is ~=2.5, so you are OK with your 8t, but you have to insert a total airgap of 0.666mm.
If the core is totally ungapped and you create it with a spacer, the spacer needs to be 0.33mm.
The IRF510 will work, but it is rather light for such an application, and this will lead to severe conduction losses when the circuit operates normally
