  1. Closed: Re: Voltage input to BLDC inverters on tethered drone?

    This calculates to average 1A current draw, 400 ohms impedance (in round numbers). That amount has to be achieved by reactive impedance (coils with large Henry value), or ohmic resistance...

    Closed: Re: AC-DC power supply design

    Suppose you pre-charge the capacitors directly from an auxiliary power supply? Install a plain diode and resistor, calculated so caps take a second or two to reach 90 percent running voltage. Power...
  3. Closed: Re: Testing Amps on rewound microwave transformer

    Yes, if your load doesn't change resistance in use. Incandescent lamps increase in resistance when they glow. Normally this throws off your calculation. However if you apply only 48V instead of house...

    Closed: Re: BJT amplifier design

    Common base mode is suitable. It's tricky to adjust bias voltage and current, in order to find a good operating point.

    Simple simulation using your specs of Rin, Rout.

  5. Closed: Re: Voltage input to BLDC inverters on tethered drone?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the drone has its own step-down converter. High current is needed in R/C aircraft. 25 years ago electric planes typically had battery packs of 5 or 10 or even 20 'C' cells...
  6. Closed: Re: Voltage input to BLDC inverters on tethered drone?

    Tether wires appear lightweight and thin, implying low Amperes. I imagine it takes from 100 to 300 watts to lift a drone cam. And it seems convenient (as well as sensible marketing) to make the...
  7. Closed: Re: Testing Amps on rewound microwave transformer

    Simulation of transformer with various loads. Switches were closed in sequence. Scope trace travels to the left. Notice volt reading drops as current draw increases.

    A resistive type load is...

    Closed: Re: Easiest way to get 5v and ~1V

    One diode pointing downward provides 0.6V regulated voltage. Two diodes yield 1.2V. (Similar principle to a zener diode.) A safety resistor is needed.

    If you want a specific reference voltage,...
  9. Closed: Re: Testing Amps on rewound microwave transformer

    One way is to attach various resistors and measure AC volts. That gives you an idea when the secondary output voltage starts to drop, thus letting you know how much power you can get from your...
  10. Closed: Re: Earth leakage Detection "positive" as well as "Negative" >30mA.

    Ordinary multimeters like I've used detect current as DC only.
    Here's a handy trick to measure AC current: Insert a resistor inline, and measure AC voltage across it. Resistor value should be very...
  11. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Need very basic R-C "delay off" circuit

    Simple diode-resistor-capacitor networks create a gradual ramp-wave when you input a sudden transition.

    The principle behind the downward ramp (lefthand) is obvious.

    It's not as obvious how to...

    A voltage doubler can provide your step-up ratio, almost 2x.
    Two voltage doublers acting symmetrically provide AC to the load.

  13. [SOLVED]Closed: Re: Technique behind the Charging and Inverting Function of an Inverter

    I once put a voltmeter on the charger for my lawnmower battery. It read 10 or 11 VDC. Yet it was able to charge a 12V battery. I wondered how this was possible? It took me a while to figure out that...
  14. Closed: Re: Automatic Water Level Controller - Dynamic Dry-Run and OverLoad Current Calc Rela

    When starting up your motor is likely to draw several more Amperes than it does during normal running.

    175V suggests the unit gets power from house voltage.

  17. Closed: Re: [PIC] Car Cooling System PSU Design Related

    Diode D5 is in different positions on the two schematics. I agree with Easy, that D5 allows battery current to 24V circuitry at the right (in either schematic). In that sense it does not block...
  18. Closed: Re: Circuit to delay and shorten pulses of a pulse train?

    I have a schematic similar to yours. My simulation shows the incoming signal sources 1mA. It sinks 6mA.

  19. Closed: Re: [PIC] Car Cooling System PSU Design Related

    No. D5 permits current flow only downward (charging) through B2 (lower) battery, never upward (discharging).

    D5 is faulty because it does not permit normal charging. B1 battery only charges...

    The upper switcher needs particular care about its circuit connections to the upper battery. How it's ground-referenced, whether to positive supply, and whether it's an isolated type.

    Here's a self-oscillating astable H-bridge made from transistors. The series LC shapes AC square waves into sines. LC values determine resonating frequency.

    The rightmost invert-gate pulls the D pin hi or low, to drive flip-flop operation in a correct way that divides by 2.

    Is this a recent protocol compared to early USB power delivery? As I understand it, any device needs to negotiate (enumeration), before it can receive maximum current from the USB port. Before that...
