Hey guys I need some help. I urgently need a boost converter for a certain project of mine but I really suck when it comes to designing analog circuits. What I need is a dc to dc boost converter (12V/24V) that can supply a current of approx. 5 amps and can sustain transients of upto 11 amps.Could anyone post the schematics and components required for it or guide me to where I could get help with this?Also I am planning to control the duty cycle of this boost converter with an Arduino. Would that be possible?Thanks in advance.P.S This is my first post in this board so I apologise if I am breaking any rules
Use a 555 timer and a mosfet
>>1573632Get designated IC. Read datasheet, it would have general usage schematic. Copy it.
>>1573632>Also I am planning to control the duty cycle of this boost converter with an Arduino. Would that be possible?if you buy a genuine ardy it will have it
>>1575639And I should clairify, it will be a dollar or two higher than the rip-off clones, but eht real ones have a lot of features and are more reliable with the studio sketch
>>1573632>I am planning to control the duty cycle of this boost converter with an Arduino.bad idealook what goes into designing a digital control loop and then reevaluate your choice of controller
>>15736321/ Go to ti.com2/ CTRL+F boost converter3/ pick 15 amp capable one // or follow "5 amp capable + big-ass external transistor" design4/ Do calculations as explained in datasheet : typical resisor ladder shit if you wonder about complexity5/ done>also lurk for application notes on TI website : they are very worth reading, if by chance the IC you selected have a matching AN, go for it.
