I have to make 12V ~ 10A power supply, but I have no idea how to do that.
Any idea are welcome.
thanks

power supply 12v 10a

My choice would be to use 10 1.5 amp LM 317 adjustable + regulator`s
Well heatsinked set to deliver 12v. Use a 0.3 ohm resistor on each output to maintain equil current flow through each regulator.

Ensure that your transformer / rectifiers / smothing are capable of suporting 10 amps current flow.

12v power supply 10a

Loot at www.st.com and search "L4970". I use its to create a very good switching power supply up to 10A

10a power supply

Do you need a regulated supply or an unregulated one?

A cheap way of getting an high power unregulated supply is to buy a car battery charger - they are often cheaper than the cost of a transformer by itself! They are normally rectified but not smoothed, so you need to add a large capacitor on the output.

12v 10a transformer

You can modified the 5v output of PC Power supply.

Which components ?

- Switching transformator.
- Rectifiers, inductance and capacitors of secondary side of trf.
- feedback unit.

Hi,

Check the ARRL manual for what you want.

Bye.
