Many electronics circuits and projects for learning in simple ways.

A power supply circuit is what the importance of various electronic projects. My website has a big size grow up every day.  Sometimes, you may look for them are difficult. So I collect them (over 150+circuits) on Category: Power supply circuit

But I want you to save time.  This post may be useful. I recommended the circuits below, with the PCB. Also, they are easy to build and low price for beginner and all.

power supply circuit with pcb

First, let’s meet 3 most type of Power Supply
1. Battery
A lot of circuits use a few power. So it can be powered by batteries. This is small and easy to use anywhere. But normally they are lows voltage. Thus they are the best for low current using.

You should use rechargeable batteries, to reuse many times to save money a lot. I like my children use them. Because it is safe for him.

2. Solar
We can use it as solar power our circuit directly, But we like to use it is a solar charger for a rechargeable battery. For example, my son like to make the solar light.

3. AC Line
We use AC line, its basic is AC Adapter, like a power supply. They are the compact units and easy to use than a battery.  We can apply them in various output voltage and currents. When we are in a house. we should use them instead of batteries and solar, it will save our money.
Caution: We must use it carefully.  Safety first!  It is many useful but also can kill you!

On our site have a lot of the power supply circuit. We cannot show you all. Thus, for saving you time see lists below.

Linear Power Supply Circuit are Recommended

  1. My first Variable DC Power Supply Circuit, 1.2V to 30V 1A using LM317
    I like to use it. Because it’s easy to use, easy to create, and cheap. For example,  you can use it instead of the 1.5V battery, it’s easy.
  2.  Second, First Fixed DC regulators using Zener diode and transistors —is a small and cheap circuit. You can build it. I believe you!
  3. 5V, 6V, 9V, 10V, 12V, 1A Fixed Regulated using IC-7805, IC-7806, IC-7809, IC-7810,IC-7812Fixed voltage regulators
    They are the most popular 1A fixed DC Regulators, easy and cheap. For example, when we need to use 5V 1A supply for a normally digital circuit. We usually use LM7805-IC here.
  4. 1.2V-25V, 3 amps, Adjustable regulators using LM350T
    I sometimes need to use 3A variable voltage source. But LM317 cannot help me, easily. In a short time, we use LM350T. It is the best linear [email protected]
  5. 0-30V, 3A Adjustable DC Supply
    We seldom use 3A Current that can adjust 0V to 30V output. This is a better choice. It uses LM723 as the famous regulator IC. And here is modern design circuit, full protection than LM350T.
  6. 0-50V Variable Voltage output @3A
    If you need to use voltage output over than 30V or adjust 0V to 50V.  You can use it. They have the key components, LM723, and the higher voltage 2SC5200 transistor.  Also, full overload protection.
  7. Simple Zener diode voltage regulator circuits
    Here is a simplest DC fixed regulator circuit. It includes Zener diode, as act a reference voltage and a transistor to increase current up to output.

  2. I am designing a circuit which uses all 230 v AC ,solar energy and wind energy to charge a battery of 12 v dc li ion battery pls suggest me a way to do that

  3. Hello
    I really like your site, but Please, could you get someone who’s mother tongue is English to correct all the grammar mistakes!! It really makes understanding what you mean to say very difficult!

    1. Hi Pierre,
      Thanks for your feedbacks.
      I will try to use English grow up.

  4. IDesign a ±12 Vdc dual voltage plus earth output switching regulator supplied from a
