Abstract: Several accessible power supply equipment with different difficulty levels and complexity mostly give a singular DC output that does not provide same use when an Output AC Power that is quite low to a great extent preferred. In this work, a stabilize, fixed and varying power supply device that has output voltage of 0.5 V to 18.15 V variable DC, and current range from 0 – 0.88 A with short circuit protection was constructed by using inexpensive materials, and fuse was used as circuit breaker . Likewise, we examined the regulation attributes of the power supply units that is just been constructed to a specific load regulation to decide its strength by contrasting it with a regular power supply device and ascertain the power supply’s effectiveness through its efficiency. Test and examination were carried out utilizing the developed power supply unit to power loads of 10 to 50 Ω. The trend of the output results demonstrated that the power supply was in line with the standard PSU. The output supplied would be useful in research facility estimation to supply the power for direct incorporated circuits, delicate circuits, simple and advanced circuits, TTL and wide-ranging applications necessitating supply force.
