Mate_Well Posted December 30, 2018 Report Share Posted December 30, 2018 •Thank you for the help. That doesn't sound really good for me then, i will try to make it hopefully work, i won't mind ripple at the high end as much, (since i will not be pushing it to the limits), with these facts in mind, if i would go for more powerfull transistors and put them idealy all on a heatsink, and air cool them, they should not get too hot hopefully, in worst case, i could put them in pararel. for the transformer, i alredy have it which is small issue, since i'm starting i can not get diffrent one any time soon, i might actualy eventualy go back, redesign few stuff on it, and maybe order more suitable transformer, once i get better knowledge about electronic in general, •Also will putting back the Q1 with the rezistors&diode (if it is needed for it, seen latest version of this circuit without it at the 5A mod page Link), keep the other parts cooler or have no effect and make it a bit more dumbprof (let's face it, if i make stupid mistake as i usualy do by acident, i would not like to kill the power suply at it's 1st year of use )? •Also could Full wave rectifier like this one, replace the full bridge rectifier, considering i have CT transforer, that could allow me to get enought current in the low output voltage, and at high voltage, it will remain with big ripple affect sadly (i don't mind it as much) Ripple measured by Tintin •Thanks for help&understanding i appreciate it a lot Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
