This Hi-Fi amplifier circuit is suitable for a lot applications like general purpose amplifier, guitar amplifier, keyboard amplifier. The amplifier can be also used as a sub woofer amplifier but a subwoofer filter stage has to be added before the input stage. The amplifier has a low distortion of 0. Capacitor C8 is the input DC decoupling capacitor which blocks DC voltage if any from the input source.
IF unblocked, this DC voltage will alter the bias setting s of the succeeding stages. Resistor R20 limits the input current to Q1 C7 bypasses any high frequency noise from the input. Transistor Q1 and Q2 forms the input differential pair and the constant current source circuit built around Q9 and Q10 sources 1mA. Preset R1 is used for adjusting the voltage at the output of the amplifier. Resistors R3 and R2 sets the gain of the amplifier.
The second differential stage is formed by transistors Q3 and Q6 while transistors Q4 and Q5 forms a current mirror which makes the second differential pair to drain an identical current. This is done in order to improve linearity and gain. Power amplification stage based on Q7 and Q8 which operates in the class AB mode.
Issues on Connecting MOSFETs in Parallel
Preset R8 can be used for adjusting the quiescent current of the amplifier. The network comprising of capacitor C3 and resistor R19 improves high frequency stability and prevents the chance of oscillation. F1 and F2 are safety fuses. Set R1 at midpoint before powering up and then adjust it slowly in order to get a minimum voltage less than 50mV0 at the output.
Now adjust R8 so that the multimeter reads A basic dual power supply is used for the amplifier circuit. If 6A ampere bridge is not available, then make one using four 6A6 diodes. C10 and C11 are high frequency bypass capacitors. Filter capacitors C8 and C9 must be at least uF, higher the value lesser the ripple. I have transformer of 3 amp. The sound is superb.
Thank you sir for the PCB layout. If no, then what should I change in power supply??? I want to use this amplifier circuits on single power supply. What is the purpose of the resistors R1 and R8 being variable? Also what use capacitors C1 and C2 in parallel? Why not use a single capacitor? R1 to make zero current flow thrbough speaker. R8 to adjust no signal current adjustment of 50mA. C1 is used to take care of HF decoupling, as C2 is wound capacitor with inductive componunt and for LF decoupling.
Pretty useless. If you try to build, it will not work, as they have not included a lot, what you see is only the tip of the ice-burg. Hi sir, I am planning to make a 2. The spec is given below, also I have some doubts regarding the project. It will be great if I get your valuable suggetions. I think preamp will just only increase the voltage level of the input signal, but when we split a signal into two actually the current is divided into two.The Mazilli ZVS flyback driver is well-known throughout the high voltage community for its simplicity and ability to deliver kV at high currents for a flyback transformer.
About one and a half year ago, Marko from 4hv. I build the circuit as a proof of concept model in order to show it to my father that would like to start doing black smith work on small knifes. Read this document about safety! Supply voltage needs to be minimum 12 VDC, lower than R gate resistors can be used in that case, if supply voltage dips under 10 VDC, there is a risk of MOSFETs failing from overheating by working only in the linear region or short circuit if one of them stops switching.
The internal construction of MOSFETs with a higher voltage rating makes them unsuitable for use in a self oscillating circuit like this Royer oscillator.
A MMC is made from 27 capacitors to avoid excessive heating in a single capacitor. The capacitors will still heat as massive current flows between the tank and work coil. To get a good result, a large tank capacitance is needed, if a capacitance lower than 4 uF is used, results might be disappointing.
It is strongly advised to use a capacitor with made from polypropylene MKP or similar that can handle large RMS currents, it might even be necessary to water cool the capacitor too.
A MMC as the one I use here can only withstand short run times and will even then heat up. The value of the inductors are advised to be between 45 to uH and depending on core material the number of turns varies a lot, use a LCR meter to check the values. Water cooling of the work coil is a must!
Even at just small runs with moderate power input as the ones I have conducted, the work coil would take damage from heat. I succeeded in putting the entire setup together from parts I have salvaged from old equipment, only the MOSFETs was bought new and used before.
The inductors are made from ferrite transformer cores from old power supplies. The heat sinks are glued together with a piece of acrylic plastic in-between to insure electrical isolation between the two heat sinks.
The work coil is made from 5 turns of 8 mm copper tubing, giving approximately 0, uH. This gives a resonant frequency calculated to about kHz.
Resonant frequency is measured to kHz. The measured frequency is different from the calculated as the work piece will influence on the coils electromagnetic properties. First picture shows a M4x10 mm screw heated red hot at Watt input power, second and third picture shows a M10x20 mm bolt heated red hot at Watt input power.
A good and reliable oscillator as long as supply voltage is kept within safe area of operation for the MOSFETs and only short run times are used unless there is used good components and water cooling on work coil, MOSFETs and capacitors. Pingback: Royer induction heater — first test Kaizer Power Electronics. Hey Augustin, you would be driving the gates a little bit harder with 15V instead of 12V, it should work without much trouble, it is first when you get above 20V you could get in trouble.
Hey i want do it for the exam of the 5th class… Is it good take the inductance from a pc power supply? The ferrite cores you find in a pc power supply is powdered iron cores and while they can be used, they will saturate faster and heat up more than a ferrite core would, if I remember correctly you need to have more turns on a iron powder core to get the same inductance, get a cheap LCR meter from hong kong over ebay if you do not have one.
Does the same circuit work for a pancake coil with 50uH? Have you created a simulation file e. Yes this circuit would also work with a pancake coil so you could basically use it as an induction stove, you would have to experiment with coupling between coil and work piece or pan! I have tested to follow your circuits. It could not work. I could noticed. I could see to short circuit of mosfet and zener diode, So,I would like to know resonal of fail circuit.
Thank you very much.This power inverter is a lot more frequency-stable than the minute DC-AC converter and it can be built to operate with battery voltages from 12 Volts to 48 Volts.
The basic advantages of this unit are:. All the components, except for the transformer, are mounted on a single-sided printed circuit board. The field-effect power transistors are also fitted to the board, but they are mounted on a heat-sink and provide the support for the board.
The board is not to be bolted down to anything. Pay particular attention to the components, especially the orientation of the transistors and the 10uf electrolytic capacitor.
I hate to admit it, but I got a bit of a shock with the first prototype of this board. I made the basic mistake of fitting the electrolytic capacitor the wrong way round.
In operation you need to have a fuse in the battery lead. If you intend to load the inverter to Watts, then you will have a current of 45 Amperes at 12 Volts, or only 22 Amperes at 24 Volts. At 48 Volts battery voltage, the current will halve yet again to 10 Amperes. Is there anywhere I can find more information on this circuit?

How is Rds on related to the Drain current? If your manufacturer can't give you the information and you really need it, move on to another manufacturer. There is no magic gate voltage threshold at which a FET suddenly switches from full off to full on.
There is voltage at which a small change in gate voltage causes the most change in channel resistance, and sometimes this is termed the "threshold", but it is still a continuous function.

These are sometimes called logic level FETs. They may have a reasonable on resistance at 3. That part is also specified to have a "gate threshold voltage" of mV to 1. It is trying to tell you that the channel won't come on much as long as you hold the gate at mV or less, but since they don't give you actual current or resistance numbers it's not much to design by. Rds ON improves decreases with higher gate voltage, even after the FET is ON but if the gate voltage gets too high, the reliability of the part suffers.
Rds ON is insensitive to drain current until you get near the active region of the FET where it comes out of saturation. There's not much Rdson variation. These are the current vs. For a given gate-to-source voltage, there is a current limit above which Vds just shoots upwards because the MOSFET acts like a current sink.
This is great for linear amplifiers but bad in power circuits and you usually won't want to operate here. If you look at the datasheet curves, you'll note that the current limit changes quite a bit with Vgs. You'll also note that for the most part, the Rdson part of the curve does not change much with Vgs. At 25 C, Vgs above 5. Variation vs. You typically see a factor of 1.

It's a FET. It doesn't need a resistor, but if you really want one anything from 1 ohm to 1 megohm will do. If you choose to include a high value, it will need a capacitance across it. Lower values may be desirable in introducing a gate delay and preventing the condition where both FETs are on at once.

If you prefer to watch my video tutorial, or just see what this thing is capible of, watch the video below:.
Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson. Compared to the normal Slayer exciter circuit, this circuit has some major changes.
However, using FETs presented an issue with the gate-drive, as the gate could no longer be driven directly by the feedback. I also added a resonant tank capacitor across the primary to make use of the EMF flyback and help the circuit achieve resonance, and a 10K K resistor across the input and output pins of the DS to increase stability and reliability of the oscillation.
Since the input to the DS is susceptible to the uncontrolled voltage transients from the feedback, I also added a few 1N diodes to shunt voltages that go 0. If these are not used, the DS will die within seconds of operation.
To power this circuit, there are many limitations on the type of power supply that can be used. Most modern Switch Mode Power Supplies SMPS will often not work as inrush current and other current peaks will cause them to go into foldback current limiting mode, which basically means that they turn the output off most of the way as a form of short circuit protection until you reset power to them or when the load is disconnected. Even the older unregulated transformer based ones are simply not big enough.
Now to achieve the results I did, you are going to need one beefy power supply. One of the transformer power supplies used was the 12V 10A beast shown in the picture, and this power supply was in series with another, smaller 12V 4A unregulated power supply, which was in series with yet another 24V 2A transformer. Under no load, I was achieving about 50V.How to Build a ZVS Driver, Run, and Mosfet Failure
However, under heavy load peaks as high as 8Athe voltage would sag to 35V. To power the modulated circuit, you will need at least a 12V 4A power supply, but to achieve the same results as I did in my video, however you will need 50V 2A. At voltages higher than 15V, however, you need to consider that you will either need to use separate power supplies with a common ground it is OK to use a small 12V wall wart for this supplyor use some sort of voltage regulator or buck converter to step main supply voltage down to 12V.
This solution is not ideal, and certainly not the way I implemented it. Only use this method if you are desperate like I was at the time. Regardless if that is the solution you plan to use, take a look at the last picture for the schematic. There is not a lot to say here, Just build up the circuit on a breadboard, connect the power, and see if it works!
If not, troubleshoot and see what is wrong. I recommend to start working on the power supply section first, in my case, that's building up the Zener diode voltage regulator.
Make sure that can deliver 12V or so, and at least mA. Using a wall adaptor for this instead is fine, just make sure you pay attention to polarity and that the negative of that supply is connected to the common for the entire circuit.
Use a large filter capacitor of least uF as well as some smaller film or ceramic capacitors for better filtering of higher frequency components. Once you verify the power supply regulation part of the circuit is working, you can move on to building up the DS section and testing it. Once you make it, you can test it by connecting a LED to one of the outputs of the DS and ground paying attention to the LED polarity and connect the input of the same buffer to ground and Vcc.
The LED should light up when the input is grounded. Now just modify the circuit by adding the transistor between the power rail for the DS MOSFET inverted buffer driver and the circuitry to drive that transistor. Simple enough, right? But do keep the capacitors on the power rails themselves. So make sure that the power supply's you are using are healthy and working as they should.I have CD and I want to use it as driver.
