    Identifying the input power leads of a salvaged UPS transformer for projects

    Hello everyone, I'm writing this post mainly to help others who have had asked many questions in the past how to figure out the input supply leads (115V or 220V AC wires) on a salvaged UPS transformer. These transformers from a UPS are quite bulky and quite powerful and can be very useful in...

    Calculating secondary turns on transformer

    I am designing a transformer for a high voltage converter. The topology is a push-pull converter. My method is to have a 200V primary generate 4x750V secondary windings, each feeding a voltage multiplier to generate 1500V. Then connect these in series and generate the final 6kV. So far I have...

    Where to find SMALL POWER TRANSFORMERS?

    Hi all, I'm interested in assembling a circuit that will be capable of CONVERTING 220V TO 5V@2A 10W (Edit: AC TO DC) The issue is that I manage to find only PRICEY, HUGE TRANSFORMERS like this. I know there are small circuit (example) available for purchase, so my question is - Where can I...

    How to determine component values and switch dead-times in a fly-back passive snubber circuit

    I have been studying the use of snubber circuits within flyback converters and other hard-switched converters, and doing some simulations to see the results. I have came across one type of snubber called a passive snubber circuit, which uses no resistor and instead some additional passive...

    Great tool for transformer calculation

    Hi guys, I just found a great website that lets you easily calculate the parameters of a transformer or inductor, given the core parameters and material. I was trying to choose some suitable core to make a flyback for geiger counter, and this really came handy instead of doing a bunch of...

    Designing Step Up Flyback Transformer Help

    Hi. I am trying to build a power supply which output is 2000VDC and 20mA (40W) input is 220V ac (european input). I thought I can use flyback transformer. And I started to design. I selected duty cycle as %50 and frequency as 50kHz (actually I don't know how to select frequency and duty cycle...

    Low AC Current Sensor Circuit (current sensor)

    I am having issues finding a Variable current sensor switch that will precisely sense within the AC current ranges of 0-1 Amps (Test Range 0.001-0.2 Amps). Once the range of (0.001-0.2A) is sensed, I would like to trigger an alarm. Any suggestions on what I could use to sense such low AC currents?

    Newbie Power Supply advice needed

    Hi everyone, This is my first post here. I am studying for a masters in engineering with the open university. I have only recently started so please forgive my novice vocabulary. I am currently designing a personal project. The figures I am working with are as follows; Voltage: 12vdc Amps...

    Single versus three-phase transformers for power density

    I have currently designed a powerr converter, with a single phase transformer which operates at >200kHz. The design goal was to create a converter that increases power density, by minimzing the size of the passive components, namely the transformer and the output storage capacitors, which are...

    Old Dental Micro motor power supply problem

    Hi! I have a very old Kavo Brand German made micro motor (probably made around 1970s-80s). It it a very well built tool but the power supply is suffering from some problem. When the brushed motor hand piece is connected and powered on, it will spin but in constant pulses (maybe 1 second on, 1...

    What is this doing with only three wires

    ok i know its a step-up transformer that i pulled from an electric mouse trap for the life of me i can't figure out how the bloody heck they get the thing to step up or work at all I've dissected a couple and it would appear to be a layered step-up transformer the blue and black are the primary...
