The project presented here is a wide input voltage range non-isolated DC-DC Converter, that provides a regulated, adjustable output voltage. The operating input supply is 55V DC and output regulated from 1.2V to 50V DC. The project built using LM2576HVT-ADJ IC. Screw terminals provided for easy input and output connections, onboard power LED at the input, bridge rectifier for AC/DC Input, an onboard potentiometer to adjust the output voltage, etc. This is a low-profile board with a thermal area on PCB that acts as a heatsink. An additional LC filter using C5 and L2 that reduces the output ripple by a factor of 10 or more is included in this circuit. The device has a current limiting feature to prevent the switching current from exceeding a safe value during an accidental overload on output.”
