 9th August 2006, 01:23 PM #1 Puggie   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2004 winding multiple secondaries on a toroid??? I need to wind my own toroid for a SMPS I need to go from 12v to 18V and ± 25V. the 3 secondaries (18V and ± 25V) do I need to wind these each all the way around the toroid or can I wind the primary and 3 secondaries over a 1/4 of the toroid each. I'm guessing I can't but had to ask. EDIT: how many turns would be required for the primary, roughly, are we talking 5, 10, 20 or more? thanks Bill.

I would do the 18v one first, then bifilar the two 25v ones. __________________ www.readresearch.co.uk my website for UK diy audio people - designs, PCBs, modules and more.

For the supplies I have done, I use the following equation: N = [Vin (min) x e^8]/[K x Fs x Ae x Bmax)], for N = number of turns Vin(min) = 11V K = 4.0 (Sq wave), K = 4.44 (sine wave) Ae = Effective cross-sectional area of the toroid Bmax = Max flux density in Gauss (@ switching frequency) So, at 50kHz (100kHz oscillator), using a #77 material ferrite toroid (FT-140-77), my primary is 4.26T + 4.26T, at 11V minimum input, rounded down to 4T + 4T for the primary. Figuring out the secondaries number of turns ratios is the same as for linear supplies. This equation is good for center-tap push-pull, half-bridge and full-bridge topologies, because their cores swing in opposite (and hopefully equal) directions of the B-H graph, and have better core utilization than uni-polar topologies (single-ended forward and flyback).
