Abstract

The power supply circuit shown in Fig. 1 provides one or more regulated power sources which can be driven by batteries or standard power lines or a combination of these. This circuit has the advantage of controlling and limiting current without using a series resistor for sensing the current. (Such a resistor can dissipate several watts in high power applications.)
