Simulations of simple shunt voltage regulator circuits to regulate the rectified output of a permanent magnet alternator such as may be found on many motorcycles.
Several variations of the basic circuit are possible.
*Please note, however, that not all variants are illustrated in this project*:
1. Using a bipolar power transistor as the shunt regulator element. Suitable for low power alte...
Voltage regulator module based on the AMS1117 chip with different fixed output voltages
[Module YP-8 - U1 AMS1117 5.0V](https://www.adrirobot.it/alimentatori/convertitore_jp-8/convertitore_yp-8.htm)
[Module YL-46 - U1 AMS1117 3.3V](https://www.adrirobot.it/alimentatori/convertitore_yl-46/convertitore_yl-46.htm)
This is a simple but efficient voltage regulator / buck-converter circuit.
High Side Mosfet driver for elegence and a 393 to power the charge pump and for the comparator circuit.
The IRF540 will power to 5A but the circuit will function at higher powers by changing the MOSFET.
The Zener Reference is 7.1v which the trim pot then allows you to select the output voltage (which must be lower). If...
