Dual DC power supply

  • #1
Hi,i really need help on how to design a dual channel DC power supply that fulfills the following specifications :

1) Operation - User selection between independent adjustment for positive and negative output voltage, and series tracking mode (slave channel tracks the master channel)

2) Output voltage amplitude : 0-20V± 5%

3) Current limit : 0 - 1.5A± 10%

4) Powered Directly from main supply

5) Indications of power on, constant voltage and constant current mode

I really hope you guys will be able to help me and provide me with a schematic to achieve the above specifications..thanks in advance =)

that schematic should produce from 1.2 to 27 volts.

check datasheet for your regulator.

EDIT make that "that schematic should produce from 1.2 to about 19 volts.

what limits it to 19V is volts available from transformer.
15 X sqr(2) = 21 volts, less drop across bridge.

use a higher voltage transformer, something like this:

and you should do fine.
