The formula is for minimal bootstrap capacitor (an inequality in mathematical terms), so the answer in case of a variable time period should be clear.
IF you can open the probe in a way that allows it to be reconstructed, all you will find inside is a variable capacitor (compensation control) and one or two small resistors. In view of the overvoltage condition, I would replace them all. The parts cost is almost nothing but you might need a degree in neurosurgery to handle the
Ultrasonic transmission requires both TX and RX transducers to resonate at the same frequency. Try adding variable capacitor (10-300 pF) in parallel with one transducer, if no improvement, then to the other. Use a parabolic reflector on one or both sides to increase directivity. Try checking the waveform with an oscilloscope before the amplifier
Hello, Please could you check the attached fan drive circuit for driving the "ebm papst 8218 JH3" fan? Please advise if this circuit is OK? Basically, as you may see, it is driving the fan from a Buck converter. Do you believe that the 10uF capacitor across the fan is enough capacitance? The PWM is at a frequency of 100KHz, and its duty is
Dear all, I need variable capacitor, working at 1-2GHz, with capacitance of 1-5pF. I hope the Q is high enough, such as 200. Can you recommend? Thanks. Yun
It's not strictly MPPT. Rather a variable Vin regulator implementing the function Vin = a + b*Pin
Hi I want to build a variable low frequency generator. Frequency range: 8Hz - 200Hz Duty Cycle: 20% - 30% I could not work out a suitable configuration for a 555 because the duty cycle conflicts when the frequency is increased. Can anybody help me with this issue? Ah yes, 555 is not compulsory.....other devices like op-amp or transisto
I have an incoming variable frequency (1 KHz to 20 KHz) and variable duty cycle pulse. I need to convert the duty cycle into an analog voltage between 0 and 1. I do not have the luxury of RC filtering the pulse using an external capacitor. What is the simplest way to implement this function on chip?

Problems of the circuit: - as a trivial point, bootsrap capacitor wrongly connected - voltage control loop has high gain and can't be stable - voltage control loop has wrong polarity - current control loop has wrong polarity - voltage and current error signals are combined in a way that can't achieve the intended effect It's not correct t
Hi every body. pls, can any one support me? I need connecting lumped element(variable capacitor) to resonator using cst simulator. warm regards.
In fact capacitive microphones are nothing more than a variable capacitor so needs to be biased. No. Look in Goggle and you will see that the electret mic (that we are talking about) is a condenser mic with a high voltage built into its electret material. It makes a variable low value capacitor with the movin
Do you mean checking how the results change when varying a variable value?
I?m developing a simple, five-frequency superhetrodyne receiver to operate between 2.5 MHz to 20 MHz in which the local oscillator crystals and whip antenna tuning circuits are selected (switched) using diodes. Here?s the problem: The whip tuning circuit is comprised of a single variable capacitor with five fixed-valu

Maybe this can give you some ideas :
I've built a variable voltage DC power supply circuit using an SCR, rectifier and 160v 33uF capacitor. I've got a 7-150v DC voltmeter hooked up to display the voltage. It always reads 160v, even if I use my multimeter. If I remove the capacitor, I get true voltage readings. How big of a load do I need on it to get the correct voltage to (...)
Hello I have a series L/C circuit connected to a vfo. I am trying to figure out different ways to tune it. Right now I am thinking the next ones: 1. L stationary, C mechanically tuned (variable capacitor) 2. L mechanically tuned (inserting or removing cores), C stationary 3. L stationary, C varicap 4. L electrically tuned (varying magnetizati
Hello guys, I'm trying to design reader device for RFID applications. But important thing is that frequency will be variable. For this purposes I can use to options: either for different frequencies use separated output stage with chosen value of capacitor or use one output stage and somehow vary capacitance. What is also important: i use microc
When you say MOS diode are you referring to the diode formed by the drain-bulk PN junction, or something else? Technically MOS diode is a term for a MIS structure which behaves like a variable capacitor, not a diode...

I have been trying to make a variable capacitor based off of a lookup table in PSPICE. I found a paper by cadence, A Nonlinear capacitor Model for Use in PSpice, which gives a method of creating a variable capacitor but I am unsure how to actually write the .lib file to implement this design. Any (...)
I think it was just to allow flexibility in the wiring layout; in pre-PCB days the wiring was "point-to-point" and a choice of connection point would have been useful since variable capacitors could be mounted in different ways. Both connection points could be used for different components if the chassis layout made that convenient. You don't hav
That "common" connection in the centre is actually connected to the spindle, so in that circuit, when you touch the knob on the spindle you will be adding extra capacity across the bottom capacitor. Just use one section of the variable capacitor, WITH THE CENTRE CONTACT earthed, and wire a fixed 68Pf in series with it. Frank

I am currently looking at designing and making a piece of test equipment to test the opening and closing time as well as minimum operating voltages of high voltage circuit breakers. The control circuit side of things is no problems but I am struggling to
See the attached diagram. In practice need to adjust the variable resistor P1 in order to obtain the accurate 1Hz pulse. Also need to determine the C1,R1 correct values for triggering the camera (start by using a 4.7uF - 10uF capacitor and some 4.7K up to 22K resistors). Press button 'LOAD/START' to start automatic counting down sequence when
On your schematic, the Colpitts-type oscillator is shown. The capacitors between transistor base and ground are calculated for a coil in place of the quartz crystal. The L1 in collector is tuned by 250 pF variable capacitor to resonate at 3.56 MHz for a good oscillation. Fine tuning can be done with 50 pF VXO in series with the quartz. Find (...)

L1 and VC1 (variable capacitor) make the tuning circuit to get signal of the radio stations' transmission and the received signal is amplified through Q1 amplified by Q2 and fed back to the tuning circuit (regenerative circuit, some times known as Autodyne, too, regenerative means amplified many times by the same active component, here the Q1 and Q
Yes, 9x1.414=12.7 Volts. 9 volts is the RMS value and when you rectify it and treat smoothing with a smoothing capacitor in the circuit you get Peak voltage, which is 12.7 volts per your question. Now regulating it for 5 volts fixed or using a variable regulator you can get as much as you want within the range minus regulator drop volts. Here is a

The simplest method is to use a ramp generator followed by a comparator with a variable reference. The ramp generator can be implemented as a current charging a capacitor. The reference can be a resistive divider where one of the resistors is a pot.
Yes you can use this IC for variable output, For mains step down transformer, rectifier & Filter capacitor design you will have to follow the same calculation as linear power supply , (although filter cap can be optimized if your lowest ripple tip is higher than your max output voltage i.e. for 15V output it can be 3V higher at full load). Note
To tune a circuit you have to adjust its resonance frequency, as you say the easiest way is to buy a variable capacitor and use that. The other way is to use a fixed capacitor and use a variable inductor. Select a capacitor near the middle of the range offered by the correct one. The circuit should now be (...)
