With an Assembled & Tested PCB

DIY kit comes with an Assembled and Tested PCB ensuring 100% output guarantee. Includes hardware for assembling project from scratch. Fully supported by elaborate documentation, audio visuals and tools to independently carry out the project work.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main aim of this project is to develop higher-voltage DC from a lower-voltage DC by  implementing voltage multiplier principle. If the input voltage applied is around 6 volts DC, then the output will be around 10 volts DC.

This system comprises a voltage doubler, which is a combination of two capacitors and two diodes. It is built around a 555 timer that runs from a 6 volt DC in astable mode to develop a square wave  DC. This sqare wave voltage applied to a voltage doubler circuit for developing output voltage around 10 volts DC.  

The output of the 555 timer passes through the voltage doubler to get around 12v DC with 20% regulation owing to circuit parameters. Thus, we will get 10 volts DC approximately. The load however, should be restricted to less than 5 mA as drawing higher current would result in poor regulation causing the output voltage to fall below the expected level. The output voltage can be measured with the help of a multi-meter.

This project in future can be enhanced by adding multiple stages for getting three to ten times the input voltage.

Q & A
Q:  What is the concept behind this project?
A:  The concept is controlling charging of capacitors using a timer in astable mode.
Q:  What is the maximum voltage that can I feed to 555 Timer?
A:  15V DC is the maximum voltage, to be fed to 555 Timer.
Q:  What is a voltage doubler?
A:  It is the second stage of voltage multiplier(It adds up the voltage).
Q:  In which mode 555 timers is used?
A:  555 timers is used in Monostable Mode

I was searching for my project in google related to low voltage DC to high voltage projects. Like that i found this project in Edgefx.
I found my project Title so decided to buy that project from Edgefx.
I was purchase through online

I come to know about Edgefx through my senior. I decided to take a kit by the word of my senior. I like the outputted kit because it is perfectly alright.Yes the kit delivered on time with the right components. No I purchased through online.No Suggestions.
