Power supply 4.5 A with 3 LM317 in parallel
This lm317 variable power supply can supply a voltages from 1.2V to 30V with a current 3 amperes, just as the title of this series based on LM317T voltage regulator, the LM317T regulator provide around 1.5 amperes on the heatsink, so by installing a parallel two or three of them will get a voltage source capable of providing 3 amperes. Obviously this also depends on the transformer used. (more…)
