Abstract

This project details the design process, construction, and testing of a high current DC to DC switch mode power supply. The power supply utilizes a wide range input voltage from 18 volts to 40 volts to create stable 12 volt, 5 volt, and 3.3 volt supplies at a maximum load current of 20 amps per supply. These specifications meet the computer requirements for existing robot applications that run on 24V DC battery systems.
