  • www.poweresim.com
  • www.diysmps.com/forum
  • www.diyaudio.com
  • www.edaboard.com
  • www.smpstech.com
  • Rod Elliott’s website – http://www.sound.au.com/ (project 89)
  • A very well put together high power high voltage power supply – SSB transmitter use but it can be modified – http://w5jgv.com/hv-ps1/

Books:

  • Switching Power Supply Design, 3rd Ed. by [Abraham Pressman, Keith Billings, Taylor Morey]
