Battery Charger Circuit Using SCR
The battery is charged with small amount of AC voltage or DC voltage. So if you want to charge your battery with AC source then should follow these steps.
The battery is charged with small amount of AC voltage or DC voltage. So if you want to charge your battery with AC source then should follow these steps, we need first limit the large AC voltage, need to filter the AC voltage to remove the noise, regulate and get the constant voltage and then give the resulting voltage to the battery for charging. Once charging is completed the circuit should automatically turned off.
Battery Charger Circuit Using Silicon Controlled Rectifier Circuit Diagram:
The AC main voltage is given to the step down transformer. The voltage should be down to 20V approx. the step down voltage is given to the SCR for rectification and SCR rectifies AC main voltage. This rectified voltage is used to charge battery.
When the battery connecter to the charging circuit, the battery will not be dead completely and it will get discharged this will give the forward bias voltage to the transistor through the diode D2 and resistor R7 which will get turned on. When the transistor is turned on the SCR will get off.
