Very precise 54V DC power supply

I need to build a very stable DC power supply with a variable output (51 to 56 VDC) at a very low current output ( 100 mA). But the driff and stability needs to be very less than 5 mV. The circuit will not be operating in very significant temperature changes. Which of the many Linear voltage reference should I be considering for this application?

    I'm moving this to the Power by Linear Forum, they should be able to help you better.

    Hi Santiago,

        The design that you are considering is not trivial, and there
    are several factors that you will have to consider. The voltage
    reference is key, of course, but you also need to have a low-offset,
    low-drift amplifier for your gain loop, and low-drift, low-Tc
    resistors for feedback. You may also have to consider noise, since
    loop gain will be considerable. And, of course, PCB stresses will
    matter, so carefully consider layout effects.

        For your voltage reference I suggest the LT1027DCLS8-5
    Precision, Low Noise, High Stability Hermetic Voltage Reference. For
    your gain amplifier I suggest the LTC2957HV High Voltage, Low Noise
    Zero-Drift Operational Amplifier. For the feedback resistors I suggest
    the LT5400 Quad Matched Resistor Network. Finally, to add some current
    output capability, you can include the LT3088 800mA Single Resistor
    Rugged Linear Regulator in the feedback loop.


  • Thank you Nate:

    Could you please check the the part number of the amplifier? I can't find that part on any catalog



  • Nerver mind I found it. I think it is the LTC2057HV

    You are correct. The part number is LTC2057HV.
