+&- 45VDC from 12-15VDC @25A output
 
Looking for help

As above

I've never built or even looked at DC-DC converters, A lot of audio circuits though.

How hard will this be? Can anyone point me in the direction of circuits, Or info on theory so I can learn :)

A DC-DC converter will be the most efficient way to convert.

That's quite a hefty current so care will need to be taken.

Are you looking for +/-45V @ 25A ?

That'll require at least 200A from your 12V supply.

25A !!!! there are a number of commercial products [google is your friend].

Several of the major IC companies make dc-to-dc boost chips - several have 'interactive' design guides on their website

It is not hard for low current [say <2A] boosters - both using discrete and IC approaches [again, google is your friend!]

Or just 8 in series.

hahahhahaha

BUT it is not regulated AND

you still need to // to get the current

KatieandDad 5th February 2013 02:47 AM

Whatever, it's still a lot of power to source from a 12V supply.

Graemedench 5th February 2013 07:56 AM

Thanks chaps I'll look into the manufactures sites. Didn't think they'd be as helpful as that. I should have checked :)

I'll keep you uptodate with my plans

Series-Parallel? Followed by a linear regulator?
