    Power supply 0-40VDC, 0-2A

    Hello friends,

    I want to make power supply which is controlled by PIC mcu (with filtrated PWM outputs for current and voltage limit) and with LCD for show voltage and current measurements.
    I tried to find some good schematics for this and didn't succeeded .

    I need IDEA how to do this. So, some internet links, or schematic with similar designs is enough for me.


    Thank You in advance!

    Hi Mr.Cube
    That's so simple ! it is enough you create PWM signal with your MCU and then use a float driver e.g IR2117 . and then a filter and then a feedback to your ADC !
    How much is your input voltage ? where it is coming from ? main power line ? or perhaps a transformer ?

    Yes, this is my general idea, to use PWM signals to control voltage and current limit, and with ADC to read voltage and current and show them on display. I try something which I think out last night and it works, but I want to see schematics of working power supplies just to see if someone make better solution...

    How much is your input voltage ? where it is coming from ? main power line ? or perhaps a transformer ?
    I order transformer 220VAC/36VAC 200VA, I made calculation that in worst case I have 42V input voltage to stabilizer:
    - worst LO case is that input main voltage is 200VAC, in that case I'll get 32.7VAC on secondary, which means that I have 46.3V after diode bridge in peak, when I reduce this by 1.4V (two diodes in bridge), and reduce by ~2V for voltage drops on filter capacitors (when current is 2A) I get a about 42V.
    - worst HI case is that input main voltage is 240VAC, in that case I'll get 39.3VAC on secondary, which means that I have 55.5V after diode bridge in peak, when I reduce this by 1.4V (two diodes in bridge), and reduce by ~2V for voltage drops on filter capacitors (when current is 2A) I get a about 52V.

    Here is schematic which I tried (with difference that Vref1 and Vref2 I made with trimmer 10kOhm, never used PWM on PIC before so this was faster for test):
