 26th November 2005, 08:30 PM #1 Tekko Banned   Join Date: Jan 2005 small smps with uc3844 Hello! Is it possible to make a little bipolar 35v smps capable of delivering about 2.5A, that runs on 12vdc with a UC3844, four paralelled 2SC2625 transistors and some other components required around the transformer ? The transformer i'll wind myself, is the winding ratio the same for a flyback type smps as for a pushpull one ? How big does the core need to be to make a 100-150w smps ? I have this idea to use it with the 1982 elektor amp.

For example if you want +35V/2.5A and -35V/2.5A, then your output power is Pout = 175W. In order to use the program, you can set, for example, the output voltage equal to 35V and for output current use Iout = Pout/(Vout*efficiency) With this settings, program will return a value for the primary current which is close to reality. The value for primary wire diameter could be used. For secondary windings, you have to set Iout = 2.5A and the program will do the rest. The specified value for secondary wire diameter is a good choice. Have fun !

 28th November 2005, 03:42 PM #8 Ouroboros   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Dec 2003 Location: Nottingham UK At the sort of output power you're asking for, you'll probably need to run your flyback supply in continuous-conduction mode, so make sure your feedback stabilisation is happy with operation in both discontinuous and continuous mode. (The app notes for a TL3843, UC3843 etc will explain this). Don't use a TL494, horrible old things! TL3843s cost pennies.

 28th November 2005, 08:44 PM #10 Tekko Banned   Join Date: Jan 2005 First prototype running Now i have built a first prototype around a UC3844, two IRFI640 and a transformer made with a emi filter toroid. The thing gives out around 20.2 volts and can actually drive the elektor amp, tho the voltage is alittle too low but i have tried to turn the bass up with no prob, i took it quite loud and voltage only drivved to 19v, pretty impressive for a first prototype built around a emi filter toroid. Heres some pics: A little video: smps and amp running
