I'm in the process of designing linear psu based on KORAD3005D. I started by simulating this circuit, but I have trouble doing that - it oscillates horribly. I'm not an expert in analog circuits, but I think it's some sort of problem with spice models.

ORGINAL SCHEMATIC

EDIT:

Sorry for these 3'rd party symbols, changed them to OP27, which should work the same in this circuit. (it doesn't stop strange behavior)

There is the interesting part of whole supply (glued together and signed): enter image description here In spice, i used only one power transistor, and used voltage sources as references. It looked complicated in pdf, due to a lot of other stuff. And this circuit (at least for me) "looks" correctly. Grounding in this point is used, because all opamps have ground referenced to output positive terminal (see "GNDF").

enter image description here

So this circuit is just redraw to spice. R6 serves as load, V4 and V5 are emulated references from microcontroller (set voltages), input rectifier is replaced by voltage source.

enter image description here

V(N003,N007) is voltage across output resistor - reference is only 1V for voltage and current, which means around 35/5 * 1 output voltage, so around 7V, but the voltage at the output is maximum and oscillates (after zooming). I (R3) is current of load (measured through R3) - it oscillates also hugely (it's higher at startup probably due to output capacitance).

I don't have idea what happens, this is all I know.

KIND OF STABLE VERSION with working cc and cv

EDIT 3

A concerned citizen's last version is I think best, but it as one disadvantage - voltage feedback is took before current shunt, so it lies when current is significant. Unfortunetly - connecting voltage feedback opamp's termianal directly to load leads to horrible oscillation... Changing output capacitance doesn't help

  • \$\begingroup\$ 1) Your schematic has 3rd party symbols and libraries, you have to include them since not everybody uses what you do. 2) You posted a SPICE schematic, and a bunch of files describing a complete board, out of which you expect us to deduce what you have cherry-picked and how, and complain it's not working, further expecting us to decipher your doing. 3) There are some strange choices in your schematic, such as grounding after the would-be Darlington, which looks like you've drawn it all wrong. 4) Where are you probing? Saying it oscillates is meaningless without pointing where. \$\endgroup\$ – a concerned citizen Oct 22 '20 at 8:31

This is a re-written answer because the drawings you've shown are not reliable for several reasons: voltage/current sensors with positive feedback, the supply is in series with the series regulator but after it, the schematic is drawn very ugly and causes errors of reading, but also because, despite selecting the answer (which means "la comedia e finita"), you keep updating your question. Even if it happened for good reasons, it still needs addressing.

So I've made another version, see how this fares. It's not made to win a prize, and I haven't tested it -- and never will, because the efficiency is awful. Even a bad switching regulator will be more efficient and "deliver the goods". It's not much different than your schematic, because they're all very similar, but it's drawn in a way that makes more sense. The control voltages now are negative, but they can be made positive with a simple inverting amplifier. It also has a rudimentary current protection in case of shorted output: it limits at about -3 A but the reference is afected by the diode.

V4 controls the output voltage, V5 the current. V4 ramps up , the output follows, until the output current is limited by V5; from then on, despite V4 still increasing the voltage, the output stays flat. At around 0.6 s there's a short-circuit modelled with S1 and its controlling voltage, V6. The output adjusts itself to match the current limit of V5. At 0.8 s, V5 jumps at a tenfold value for the current, which is limited by R11 and D4. Note that this current limit is not enough, since Rcs can be shorted, too, so if you need an over-current protection, you need a different solution -- honestly I don't feel particularly invested in an LDO.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank for Your time, but Your circuit doesn't want to work as expected... It is stable, but not stabilizing correctly. I played quite a lot with it (after Your modification) and it's kind of stable now and it regulates nicely. See edit2 I think I can breadboard it now \$\endgroup\$ – fifi_22 Oct 22 '20 at 13:42
  • \$\begingroup\$ @fifi_22 If you read everything I said, you'll see that I said it's not working properly. Neither is your latest circuit, since varying either V4 or V5 has no visible effect. I also said it's the way the connections are drawn that make me think the schematic is not translated well. I would seriously reconsider breadboarding this. Side note: your modification alters the current sensing (it was a lowpass before). \$\endgroup\$ – a concerned citizen Oct 22 '20 at 14:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok, I will do that next time (and this one too). BTW this is my server, but i understand the problem. \$\endgroup\$ – fifi_22 Oct 22 '20 at 19:08
  • \$\begingroup\$ I know this circuit needs some tuning, but in the school We use this supplies (original schematic) and they act quite nicely. There are probably errors in the orginal schematics - when corona ends I can go to school and measure values of components inside. \$\endgroup\$ – fifi_22 Oct 23 '20 at 17:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ @fifi_22 It's not only about the values, it's about the whole schematic. What I've re-made is based on the usual approach, while trying to maintain what was drawn, but the most important thing is to have a correct schematic to begin with. Once that is achieved, you can poke around with values, but until then... \$\endgroup\$ – a concerned citizen Oct 23 '20 at 17:22
