COMPACT HIGH POWER VARIABLE DC POWER SUPPLY
My name is Sai Abhiskeh. I am interested in research. I am very happy to say that I have done exciting work on a compact power supply with my guide Dr Sreenivasappa (Associate Prof of the ECE dept).
A linear regulator uses many high wattage resistors in parallel for protection. These resistors are bulky and they increase the cost of the circuit. In addition, these resistors may cause damage to the regulator and to the load capacitor. Multi terminal transformer or multi terminal voltage divider method is used to vary the output voltage. This results in higher power loss and non-optimum use space.
In our project
the required output voltage is obtained by varying the firing angle of the silicon controlled rectifier (SCR). This improves the efficiency and performance of the system. Our team has developed compact high power and variable DC power supply that converts AC power to DC power. The output voltage ranging from 0 - 200 volts at current of 10A is tested.
Applications for our compact high power supply source are:
Variable DC power supply for laboratory applications
Control the speed of DC motor drives in automation industry applications
