AC-DC at own


  • Mod

    Everyone is need some kind of power supply for the project. Some time AC-DC is needed.
    From a few years of hobby I did a following list for myself:

    1. list item isolated AC-DC
      1.1 purchased as adapter
      1.2 purchased in separate box
      1.3 purchased to be put on PCB
    2. nonisolated AC-DC
      2.1 soldered capacitor based
      2.2 soldered switching inductor less
      2.3 soldered switching with inductor

    More or less a coprehensive listm, with proc and cons depending of the project.
    I prefer to solder things, but you see that I put all isolated as purchased. It is all about transformers.
    I'm scared about transformers - you need to properly design it, you need to wire it and build.

    Now I can tell that I do not scared any more)

    But to simplify start I ordered transformers build for the 5/12V output at power up to 3W. It is best sutable for most of my applications.

    A testing board was created:

    soldered and tested:

    result of test as expected. at 13V output I coould get 3W of power with moderated heating

    schematic is based on LNK364

    By next step I will order PCB for my DIN Rail LEGO project:

    @axillent greate work ! It is very hard to order transformers... My congratulations! Can you share the pcb for the review 🙂 ?


  • Mod

    @koresh do you mean test pcb?


  • Contest Winner

    @axillent No, I just want to look at it.


  • Mod

    @koresh pcb picture is presented. Please clarify what else you want to see. All is open


  • Mod

    @koresh transformers is not a big deal but selection is very limited. I only found one item with reasonable pricing and sutable parameters. You can find it on ali by name EE10-A1


  • Contest Winner

    @axillent I can't see the gerbers or sources of the latest board (din shape). I've seen your transformers on ali. It is perfect. I need auxiliary coil for my projects so I should place custom order on the factory.


  • Mod

    @koresh if you need gerber let me know, i will download. I need to note that DIN is designed for a particular design of the cover

    Share please where it is possible to order customized transformers.

    I do have all things to build transformers myself. It is an alternative way

    EE10-A1

    Congratulations! It can replace the HLK-PM01 that we are using a lot here. Is it possible for you to share the schematics ?


  • Mod

    @jeremushka for sure

    schematic is standard, simplified version from datasheet
    D8, D11 and R22 are optional, it is to be able to source power from different sources (for example different phases, or from main power and from generator).
    D12 I'm using 11V to have output at about 12.1V

  • Thanks. What is the purpose of the inductor at the output of the circuit? why not to use one also after the bridge rectifier?


  • Admin

    @axillent - Nice to see you here again! Well done 👍


  • Mod

    @blacey thanks

    inductor at output is to reduce riple
    on hight voltage side will be better to put filter but there is no place for it
    inductor as such will not bring too much value



  • @axillent thank you. it is clear information 🙂 very nice work

    some questions regarding the schematics:

    1. does TVS diode 600W 5V is efficient enough? or absolutely need cut off at 160V such as 600W 160A ?
    2. for the Fuse, a slow fuse 10A is enough i think, isn't it?

    TVS need to be for 120-160V in case you supply 230V AC. You can refer to linkswitch designer for your specific needs.
    The purpose of this TVS is to be a snubber because of inductive load. Instead of TVS an RC snubber could be used.

    it is 3Watts supply, 0.5-1A slow fuse is fine

    Thanks for the answer. i will play with this LNK component. never used it before. I am curious to know the performances of it.
    for your design, you have added others functions on your PCB ? such as DC-DC converter ... etc.. ?

    my DIN desing is universal. it is for the set of different devices with common 12V power
    dc-dc is used to feed MCU from 12V
