Voltage regulator for small engine
I want to make the pulses into DC using a full wave bridge ( 25 Amp , 50 V ). I guess I could get by with a single diode if I chose to connect the coil up properly. The LM317 is an adjustable regulator. If I adjust the output of the LM317 to about 14V , the SCR should trigger on each pulse and feed the current into the battery until the battery reaches 14V minus the SCR trigger voltage ( Which will be about 13.3 V )
I am wondering if I could remove the fullwave. This would require the SCR to tolerate a reverse voltage of 14V.
