    I have a battery bank, 4 off 12 volt nominal. The battery voltage varies between 50 - 55 v. I am seeking a way to transform this voltage to 1/4 of the input.
    All the buck converters have a (when set) fixed output. I want the output to vary with the input i.e. input 54 v output 13.5v.
    I will be very please with any help.
    cheers

    what is the ampere rating of the low voltage?
    you can use uc 3844 / uc 3843 chip based converter .do change voltage feed back to get your need.usually when it is set to a voltage then the chopper will correct for that. in your case the input and output must sampled simultaneously.

    you can also use series regulator along with an op amp and a high current transistor 2N3055 OR 2N 3773.

    Thanks,I need about 300 mA. I am interested in any way I can solve this problem and if I can have a schematic, I will be pleased.
    thanks

    Can you be more accurate, what voltage input range is it, and what voltage output range do you need,?

    Input voltage between 50 to 55 vdc, output 1/4 of the input voltage. i.e. when battery voltage is 50 v I would like output to be 12.5 v and
    when input voltage is 53 v I would like the output voltage to be 53/4 = 13.25 v
    I would like the output voltage to be proportional to the input to a ration of 1:4.
    I need about 500 mA on the output.
    The output voltage is an input to a relay driver which has 4 output ports which are set to different thresholds for drivinng
    different micro relays to control different switches.
    The relay driver I use can read voltages to two decimals.
    Cheers, and thanks

    You can use a resistor divider and op amp buffer to feed a transistor output..

    IF YOU NEED ONLY A VOLTAGE FOR SAMPLING THEN USE TL 431 WHICH IS SIMPLE
    INSTED OF THIS CIRCUIT. MENTION YOUR SCHEMATICS PLEASE, USE 78L05 FOR LESS AMPERE.
