You need to make like in the ESP car smps schem, use a npn and pnp bipolar transistor, one to turn the fets on and one to discharge the gate capacitance to allow the fets to switch as they should, otherwise it will not work. The SG3525 cannot drive the fets directly as its open collector and too low current handling.

Also you need to adjust the voltage feedback for the desired output, this is easiest done with a pot.

his design omits bjt's.he says sg is capable to directly drive gates(100 ohm res req.).i used that design and smps is happily working in car.

Do I have any other choise, but to use trafo for driving gates

You all have misunderstood the gate drive issue and the point of the whole thread. We were talking about high side drive in a full bridge off-line application, not about gate buffering nor 12V SMPS.

Obviously, such high side MOSFETs require a floating drive scheme, they can't be directly connected to a SG3525.

thanks for making this clear.

Then my only option is to use trafo for driving gate's of the Mos-Fet's. Is it ok to use turn of 20:20+20 for gate trafo.

When designing such a transformer, leakage inductance should be minimised while maximising coupling between windings.

In practice, this is achieved by using the minimum number of turns that guarantees absence of core saturation for the operating frequency, voltage and temperature range, while filling the available width of the coil former (not including creepages). Sometimes, it's useful to wind bifilar or to split the primary in two (series or paralell) halves with the secondaries placed inbetween, etc...

The previous recommendations also apply to power transformers. You should figure out the optimum core size and magnet wire diameter.

The reason for a low leakage inductance is required in gate-drive transformers is that MOSFET turn-off times depend directly on it. When gate buffering is employed leakage inductance is no longer critical, though, but at the expense of an increased component count.
