I'm new to this platform and knows very little about electronics. Please forgive if any of this is dumb.
I wish to create an inrush current protection for my L298N Motor Driver, which drives a 7.5V DC motor.
The Motor draws nearly 2.5A (Please see waveform) during start which according to L298N Datasheet is above maximum.
To prevent inrush, I came up with a circuit as given below. The capacitor would be charged at all times and the IRF740 MOSFET is set to turn on when the motor starts. The capacitor would discharge through the mosfet to provide the initial current requirement. Diodes prevent reverse current.
