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 aim of this project is to develop a circuit which will step up the applied DC voltage by voltage multiplier principles. A 555 timer is used in astable mode to deliver the output approximately twice the input voltage. The output from the 555 timer is given to a voltage doubler circuit to get the desired output.

This system comprises of a voltage doubler which is a combination of two capacitors and two diodes. It also contains a 555 timer which is running in astable mode. The input voltage applied is around 6 volts DC and the output voltage is around 10 volts DC.

The output of 555 timer passes through a voltage doubler to get around 12v DC with 20% regulation owing to circuit parameters. Thus we get 10 volts DC approximately.

The load however should be restricted to less than 5 mA as drawing higher current would result in further poor regulation causing the output voltage falling below the expected level. The output voltage can be measured with the help of a multi-meter.

Further the project 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 the 555 timer is used?
A:  555 Timer is used here in astable Mode.

I searched for the words like Load Cut off Switch Upon OverVoltage or Under Voltage web site in Google.
I found my project Title so decided to buy that project
The kit got delivered to me on time with all the right components.
