# Convert Voltage

## Recommended Posts

i have a source with 7V and 2A DC, and i have to convert it to AC 7V(approx) 1-2A (approx) and frequency above 10Hz.
Help me please, you know the best!!!

What kind of waveform do you need?

1) Step-up the 7VDC/2A to 24V/0.47A with a switching power supply circuit having 80% efficiency.
2) Make a variable-frequency sine-wave generator.
3) Feed the sine-wave into a 60% efficient TDA2006 audio amplifier for a 7V RMS/1A sine-wave output. ;D

Well, that’s simple enough! And cheap too!  ;D

Hi Ante,
I was thinking about using one of TI's class-D audio amps for double the output current, but they all have a bridged output. ;D

Waveform kind doesnt matter, i only need voltage which be verse polarated about 10 times in sec. (+,-  /  -,+)

It would be simple with a TL494 variable-frequency oscillator with its opposing outputs driving an H-bridge made from two pairs of complimentary Mosfets. I gave the details in your other posted topic.
You'll need some inverters to drive the H-bridge with some dead-time for the seriesed Mosfets. ;D

F = 1.1RC

Hi Alun,
For about 50ns of each output transition, both Mosfets will conduct 10A to hundreds of amps from the power supply to ground. That's why I suggested using a SMPS IC with its dead-time controlled to avoid both Mosfets in series conducting at the same time. :(

The little 555 is bad by itself since it conducts about 400mA from the supply to ground through its output transistors in series across the supply. :(
;D

I guess a 14V peak-to-peak square wave has the same heating effect for a resistive load as a 5V RMS sine wave or 5VDC. To get 7V effective output it should be boosted by 1.4 times.

thanks ;D

Just found this old thread whil searching, oh well I'lll respond even though no none probably cares. ;D

Both MOSFETs will only turn on for a few uS even less so use a choke on the power supply, about 470uH should do.

Power the 555 though a 47hom resistor and connect a 100nf and 100uf capacitor across it and don't connect pin5 to 0V as shown in the diagram connect it to 0V vai a 10nf capacitor, better still use a 7555.

Better still use a a modified sine wave but that's a whole new story.
