A question for the electronics chaps , I would like to build a circuit that would charge up a bank of capacitors to anywhere between say 10v to 35v and when charged to the set voltage disconnect the power supply from the capacitor bank .
Any pointers ?
Nope, no Pointers, mates got a Staffy
Depends on what you want to do, I'd use a PIC, one analogue channel to read a pot, and set the reqd. voltage and another to read the cap. bank volts.
Use one digital channel to drive a relay to disconnect when it's up to what you want.
How big is this cap. bank anyway ?? Not a good idea to try to charge a damn great heap of the things from zero without some attempt at a current limiter. A big cap. is close to a short circuit at initial switch on ...
Stresses the rectifier no end ...
You going to Doncaster BTW ???
