Guys i trying to step down voltage using mosfet.
Input battery supply 40 to 50 volt
Output voltage is 12 volt not more than 500 ma.
Mosfet heating issue due to...
Since the mosfet is dropping voltage 37 volt (50v-13v), if output load consume 500ma. Then power dissipation will be 37*0.5= 18.5 watts. For this reason my mosfet getting too hot.
Can anyone suggest how to reduce the heat or what is the option for stepping down 50v to 12v without using buck converter.
