Problems occur when it starts chasing its tail.

To complicate matters datashret, the regulator will pass that surge back to the input side, pulling C1 lower in turn. You can conservatively calculate the lm78j05 size of the capacitor as: That said, if you know you have a sensitive application, then start with the value doubled and reduce if you find the performance acceptable.

More simply you can usually double the typical recommendation without difficulty. As such, the more stable the input voltage is, the more stable the output voltage. So here I give you some thoughts on “guessing” reasonable values. Output If you don’t have a large enough output capacitor the second one in your description then the output ripple will be greater than the datasheet predicts.

That means you will get the regulated voltage but the output will fluctuate around that voltage. The input capacitor should be the recommendation in the “typical application circuit” example in the datasheet.

The output capacitor should be sized as the datasheet typical and then up-sized if you find the ripple intolerable in your application. Understanding “Stability” in regulators To get an intuitive understanding which is what the question is asking foryou need to understand the concept of stability and how regulators work in the general case.


The capacitor is there to “cancel” that inductance and ensure a slowly varying e. In regulators, the ESR equivalent series resistance, really impedance plays a more important role than the total capacitance itself as this parameter describes how well the capacitance inside is able to influence the voltage outside. As such, the balance of those capacitor sizes is, to a great extent, dependent on the nature of the application.

Similarly, if the input capacitor is really large, it will take longer for the regulator to come up to the required output voltage. If you do this, your first regulator will need to come down to the final voltage plus the overhead voltage of the second regulator or the second regulator will be unable to regulate.

Specifically, the output will be slow to react datasheer rapid changes in load current demand. If the source on the left is a full wave rectified voltage, you want C1 to be large to minimize the amount of ripple that gets passed through the regulator. I recently corrected increased the sizing on the capacitors around a voltage regulator and then realized I didn’t really have good intuition on what it would look like in the wild if they were wrong.

The capacitors slow down voltage changes, thereby helping to ensure overall stability. Datasheeh will help supply current when your load switches from low current to high current and gives the regulator time to adapt to the new demand. If your load is switching over a wide range, and often, you want this capacitor to be larger. If however, it is coming ,m78m05 an already regulated supply, say your 12V rail, the capacitor can be much smaller.

My LM78M05 datasheet From the datasheet, the first input cap is simply ‘required’ with no explanation as to why. The correct answer in engineering is always “it depends,” but that’s not useful.


For the optional second capacitor, I usually choose a nominal value and type as given by the datasheet but don’t really have a rule-of-thumb formula to increase that value if, say, the destination is very far away e.

If the input voltage is isolated from the power source by a large inductance like a long wire then current changes in the regulator will manifest as large voltage changes at the input due to the inductance.

You will usually get better performance from using decade capacitors rather than just scaling up dqtasheet amount of bulk capacitance as this will increase the effectiveness of the capacitance over frequency rather than just increasing the amount in the one band where the existing capacitor is effective.

It watches what happens on the output and adjusts “stuff” internally to make sure the output really a scaled-down version of the output always equals a desired value.

Input The input capacitor is required to stabilize the input voltage. The recommended minimums should always be lm7m05 to “guarantee” stability, but you really need to revisit the design later with the functional prototype.
