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.
