PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The main concept of this project is to develop a circuit that delivers the output approximately twice that of the input voltage using the voltage multiplier principle. If the input voltage is applied around 6 volts DC, then the output will be around 10 volts DC.

The proposed system uses a timer in astable mode to deliver the clock pulses and a battery for power supply. The combination of capacitors and diodes is called a multiplier, which is interfaced with the timer output.

This system utilizes a 555 timer in astable mode, which deliver the clock pulses to charge the series capacitors, then develop the voltage approximately twice that of the input voltage instead of exact 12v due to the voltage drop in the circuit. The output voltage can be measured with the help of a multimeter.

This project in future can be implemented by adding multiple stages for getting three to ten times the input voltage.

Q & A
Q:  What is the concept behind this project?
A:  The concept is controlling charging of capacitors using a timer in astable mode.
Q:  What is the maximum voltage that can I feed to 555 Timer?
A:  15V DC is the maximum voltage, to be fed to 555 Timer.
Q:  What is a voltage doubler?
A:  It is the second stage of voltage multiplier(It adds up the voltage).
Q:  In which mode the 555 timer is used?
A:  555 Timer is used here in astable Mode.
