Do you need high current power supply without heavy and expensive transformer? Then, this circuit would be great choice for you.
This 13.8 Volt 20 A regulated transformerless power supply. 20A transformer is very-very expensive, large in size and very heavy in weight.
This power supply capable in delivers around 20Amps at 13.8V. For lower currents, a separate current limiting output, capable of 15ma up to a total of 20A has been added. Let us see what we have got here. The power transformer should be capable to deliver at least 25A at 17.5 to 20V. The lower the voltage, the lower power dissipation. The rectified current will be ironed by the C1, whose capacity should not be less than 40.000uF, (a golden rule of around 2000uF/A), but we recommend up to 50.000uF. This capacity can be built up by several smaller capacitors in parallel. The base of this design is a simple 12V regulator IC 7812.
