    Hello,

    I've been looking for 36V DC 10A power supplies over the internet and all seem quite costly, so I thought, why not spend some of my free time making one. Would anyone know of places where I could find the schematics for such a power supply? Knowing that the input would be European main line (220V AC, 50 Hz)?

    Thanks!

    Variable or fixed, tightly regulated or unregulated, current limited?

    Fixed, regulated, limited at 10-12A

    Do you know how to redesign a circuit diagram for higher voltages/ currents? Also consider switchmode instead of linear, which might save you an expensive heatsink.
    Anyway, here's a thread discussing a PSU close to what you're looking for. And here's an ultra-simple circuit (will not be 100% temperature and load stable w/o mod.).
    Btw., they're the top two hits when Googling with the keywords 36V 10A power supply diagram.
