30V Variable Power Supply Using LM317

This 30v variable power supply circuit is based on LM317  voltage regulator circuit . This LM317 30v variable power supply circuit can deliver high current (around 5 amps) and variable output voltage between 1.2 volts, up to 30 volts. The led D3 mounted on pin 6 at lm301 lights in constant current mode .

Circuit diagram 

Current limit can be adjusted using R2 potentiometer and the output voltage can be adjusted from 1.2 volts to 30 volts using R8 potentiometer . Input voltage for this variable power supply must be around 35 volts .For this power supply circuit you need to use LM317K circuit (in to3 package ) which must be mounted on a heatsink .
