Hello, thank you for taking the time to have a look at this post. I am having trouble getting the LM317 to work. I have arranged the components in the same configuration as the image below. The input voltage is 27v DC and I would like the output voltage to be a regulated 24v. R1 has a value of 270ohm and R2 is a pot that has been adjusted so the output voltage of the regulator is a measured 24V. The problem: When I connect a load across the output and ground the output voltage drops very low. For example, I connected a 56ohm resistor from the output to ground. I would expect to measure the full 24volts across this resistor but instead I measured 2.8V. Im not understanding something, any help you could give me will be greatly appreciated.
