Schematic Circuits

DC- DC Converter

This circuit will generate a smaller DC output voltage from a larger DC input voltage.It is quick and simple to make and by changing the value of the zener diode, the circuit can be universally adapted to provide other output voltages.The circuit and all diagrams represent a DC convertor with 12V battery input and 9Volt DC output.

DC - Dc Converter Schematic circuit


The output voltage is equal to the zener diode voltage less 0.7 volts, or ;

 Vo = Vz - 0.7   where Vz   is the value of the zener diode.

With the 10V zener diode as shown in the diagram the output voltage is about 9.3 Volts DC. The supply voltage used must always be at least a few volts higher than the zener voltage.
