    I am still a freshman in electrical engineering, so I know a bit more than the basics, but I have to create a device for some personal use.
    I want to make a bee venom collector.
    From what I know this device delivers an electric square pulse every few seconds and stops after a 45-minute period.
    The pulse is then transfered in a panel made out of steel.( The photo below present it in brief detail ).

    Some other chatacteristics are:
    Power: 11 - 15V battery or power adapter.
    Output voltage to collector frames: AC 15 - 40V (adj.)
    Output frequency: 300 - 4500 Hz ( (adj.)
    Consumption: 80 mA.
    Reverse voltage protection.

    I have heard that is not that hard to be made, thus I am still a rookie in circuits.I would really appreciate your help.

    A diode will be adequate to provide reverse voltage protection.
    I do not understand the output requirement. Either it has an ouput frequency or a pulse every few seconds. A microprocessor could give the frequency and duration times.
    A 555 or 4093 can make a simple oscillator to drive a pair of fets at the required frequency.
    You will need a freshman in electrical engineering to design a transformer. A ferrite core is probably suitable, I use TV line output transformer cores for much higher powered cases.
    Output voltage variation would be easier done by switching transformer taps.
