electrical engineering isn't my strong suit, but Im trying to do a home project with some automation to it. I just don't know how I'm supposed to provide power to some higher voltage components that I wouldn't be able to power off, say, GPIO pins from a Raspberry PI or something.
I can get a bench power supply off the internet and use that to form my circuits, but I don't know if that's the way it should be done. What's the way people usually power projects.
The component that I need to control now is simply a small fan, but my solution needs to be extensible to more components in the future, and I need it to be DC powered so I can control it using a circuit.
Thanks for any help!
