Understanding “Stability” in regulators To get an intuitive understanding which is what the question is asking foryou need to understand the concept of stability and how regulators work in the general case.

It watches what happens on the output and adjusts “stuff” internally to make sure the output really a scaled-down version of the output always equals a desired value. That is actually a very broad question but here are a few pointers.

This makes the input change slower than the reaction time of the control loop of the regulator — achieving stability.

Output If you don’t have a large enough output capacitor the second one in your description then the l7m8m05 ripple will be greater than the datasheet predicts. The input capacitor is required to stabilize the input voltage. More simply you can usually double the typical recommendation without difficulty. You will usually get better performance from using decade capacitors rather than just scaling up the amount of bulk capacitance as this will increase the effectiveness of the capacitance over frequency rather than just increasing the amount in the one band where the existing capacitor is effective.

What is a decade capacitor?

Post as a guest Name. So when you activate different parts of your load application circuitry you may experience sudden drops in voltage. The output capacitor C2 is more of a load leveler.

You might also consider adding a second regulator right next to your sensitive circuits this is called point-of-load regulation and is used in most PC motherboards, graphics cards, etc.


3-Terminal 0.5A Positive Voltage Regulator

This corrective change can also overshoot the mark, requiring another corrective change The recommended minimums should always be adhered to “guarantee” stability, but you really need to revisit the design later with the functional prototype. So here I give you some thoughts on “guessing” reasonable values.

Problems occur when it starts chasing its tail. That means you will get the regulated voltage but the output will fluctuate around that voltage.

If you do this, your first regulator will need to come down to the final voltage plus the overhead voltage of the second regulator or the second regulator will be unable to regulate. Sign up using Email and Password. Too low a voltage and the output will basically just be a voltage drop over the input, above that, up to the destruction point of the regulator, the output will vary slightly with input voltage within the tolerance of the specified regulated voltage. I recently corrected increased the sizing on the capacitors around a voltage km78m05 and then realized I didn’t really have good intuition on what it would look like in the wild if they were wrong.

LM78M05 Datasheet

My LM78M05 datasheet From the datasheet, the first input cap is simply ‘required’ with no explanation as to why. If your load is switching over a wide range, and often, you want this capacitor to be larger.

Those drops can be severe enough to trigger resets in your digital circuitry or worse, latching or conditions in your analog circuitry were there is a recovery time such as discharging filter capacitors. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. You can conservatively calculate the maximum size of the capacitor as: The capacitor is there to lm78m055 that inductance and ensure a slowly varying e.

It will help supply current when your load switches from low current to high current and gives the regulator time to adapt to the new demand. Input The input capacitor is required to stabilize the input voltage. The regulator is a closed-loop system. For most capacitor values given for regulators, the values given are the minimum value needed for stability plus a little margin.

In regulators, the ESR equivalent series resistance, really impedance plays a more important role than the total capacitance itself as this parameter describes how well the capacitance inside is able to influence the voltage outside. For the optional second capacitor, I usually choose a nominal value and type as given by the datasheet but don’t really have a rule-of-thumb formula to increase that value if, say, the destination is very far away e.

The correct answer in engineering is always “it depends,” but that’s not useful.
