    On the face of the question the answer is ...NO!

    But, could you provide more details about the voltage regulator...spec's, part #, picture?

    I agree with KMoffett. More info would help move this discussion forward.

    If you do, wear earplugs and a face mask, because there will be a loud "BANG!" and lots of smoke. :eek:

    You would need a 24 volt transformer and rectifier to produce a source of about 33.6 volts to feed your regulator, assuming it's a linear regulator.

    This is a 2-37v regulator. Its max in put is 40v so the max of yours might be about 35. Beenthere has a great solution.

    But if you have a few extra and want to have some fun you could try if 230v works!(be careful!) also you might want to have some extra fuses at home.
