modified Wien Bridge Oscillator
«  »Last edited by Cycle
I've been playing around with a circuit emulator, and hit upon the idea of a PNP and NPN transistor pair back-to-back as a 'voltage pump', driven by an op-amp which is self-powered from that pumped voltage. It'll light a 100 watt 12 volt light and charge the battery at ~0.75 amps.

I'm unsure if this will work in real life, but here's the circuit.

And here's the text file for it:

You can go to http://www.falstad.com/circuit/circuitjs.html, click File > Import From Text, and paste the above text in to reconstruct the circuit.

If you slow it way down (so the time interval is 1 ps), you'll notice it starts out oscillating very slowly, and takes ~0.14 ms before it gets to the point that it can oscillate enough to pump the voltage. After that, it ramps up its oscillation rate until it levels off at ~7 KHz.

The circuit's beyond my comprehension, but Please! get it working!  :excited:
