Topic: Super capacitor based SMPS with 7.5 Ah battery for 100W HF SSB/CW Transceiver.
The Supercap’s most important application in Ham Radio will be its use in SMPS for making it portable and light weight for field day or emergency communication. In Ham Radio, 100 W SSB / CW transceivers typically operate on 25% in SSB & 35% duty cycle in CW mode which is the basic concept in the proposed design.
A live demo will be given on the Transceiver or test jig with a 100W load during the event.
