If you are in need of a bench top power supply for all your electronic projects, this stabilized unit from hobby-elec.org might be worth building. As a undergraduate in college I based my senior project on this example. I needed a good power supply to test many of my other projects. I figured that I might as well just make something that can be useful even after I graduated. I did my research and found this power supply circuit example. the project was a bench top power supply, 5v – 30v @ 4A max. It was based around a switching power regulator. The guide shows how to complete the whole project and even test it.
This is not a simple project for the first time electronic enthusiast, but it is something that could be very valuable when completed. This guide is a translation from the original Japanese site.
