A Digitally Controlled Dual Tracking Power Supply — II

In my previous post, I showed my design of a dual tracking ±30V linear power supply. My goal was to use the transformer (28V+28V, center tapped) from an old Deltron W127G open-frame power supply and build a lab supply that can be digitally adjusted in both constant voltage and constant current modes. I also wanted each of the channels to be able to deliver up to 10 Amps of current so that I could fully utilize the 540VA transfomer from the W127G.

A Digitally Controlled Dual Tracking Power Supply — I

Power supply is one of those things one can never have too many of. I have quite a few already, and my favorite one so far is the Topward 6603A. This dual 60V/3A tracking power supply satisfies most of my needs. I have since added an automatic fan controller, digital voltage readout and a fine voltage adjust knob, making it even more pleasant to use. Another power supply that I regularly use was the one I built earlier last year. That power supply was based on an LM338 5A voltage regulator with added digital voltage/current readouts. But I have always wanted to build a power supply more or less from scratch without using those three terminal regulators. So this time around, I decided to design and build one from the ground up.
