Consider the following Common Collector & Darlington emitter follower circuits,
Let V(in) = 5V
Vcc(supply) = 10V
Emitter(load) resistance = 100 ohm
thus, V(out) should be 5V (following input)
Corresponding Load current will be 5/100 = 50 mA
Let V(in) = 5V
Vcc(supply) = 10V
Emitter(load) resistance = 33

This diode protects regulator against discharge of the output capacitor to the output of the regulator in case when the input is shorted .. see picture below ..
Voltage regulators such as 78XX have internal current limit that limits the output current to 1A. If you need more current and still have a good voltage regulation you can use (...)

Again, as in current booster1, the vale of the resistor is wrong .. it should be somewhere between 3-10Ω ..
In this case current is limited by additional transistor, the 2N6049.
It happens when the voltage accross Rsc riches ≈0.65V and this tranistor starts to control Vbe of the power PNP transistor .. Iout≈0.65/Rsc

your question does not make alot of sense.
You cannot boost both the voltage and current.
If your 6V supply is capable of delivering 25AMPS - that is 150 Watts
Power = Volts X current

You can try this method:
connect a small 220/12 (or less) transformer between each phase and Neutral (I asume you have access to N or E, in isolated circuits the primary should be rated for 400V and connected betwee phases). If you want to monitor each phase separately you will need 3 circuits with OR function at the final stage.

First of all, if you are using interleaved phases then you must use a current mode control scheme, meaning you do not actually generate PWM with variable duty cycle, but rather you just provide a clock, and the current control loop will settle on a duty cycle based on the peak current setpoint. So you only need to create phase interleaved (...)
