DEVELOPMENT OF A TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER FOR THE STREET PERFORMANCE ELECTRONIC DEVICES
The method of temperature control for the street performance electronic devices is presented, that allows using an available element base with an operating temperature range of 0...70 °C in the design of the device. As a heating element it is proposed to use an operational amplifier-controlled powerful bipolar transistor. The proposed solution makes possible the creation of a simple heating source consisting of components with an extended temperature range, the parameters of which are weakly dependent on the supply voltage. The temperature controller has an additional unit that prevents the start of the main device at low temperatures. The values of all the device elements have been calculated, which will allow using this solution in any compact street performance devices. Diagram of the power source with the values of components calculated as above has been simulated with SPICE-simulator of the Altium Designer package.
