Homemade Voltage stabilizer for car!
« on: June 05, 2008, 02:06:16 AM »
This weekend I worked on my voltage stabilizer!

That was a fun project.

Basically a voltage stabilizer is supposed to do:

Quote
How This Item Works

The vehicle's ECU is highly dependant on all sensors that provide data and signals to coordinate different parts in different places of your vehicle. The vehicle's ECU can analyze if the voltage flow on your vehicle is accurate. What this BELLON does is enhance the voltage and stabilize it, so all the components in your vehicle such as audio, lamps, sensors and electronics work to their maximum potential. By stabilizing the voltage from the battery of your vehicle, the load of the battery is reduced, resulting in increasing engine performance.

 
The Benefits

A. Increase torque and horsepower.
B. Improve fuel efficiency. Save 10%~25% more gas.
C. Improve engine response. Quicker Engine Start; Better Throttle Response.
D. Stabilizes idling as well as increases air conditioning efficiency.
E. Quick engine start by improving ignition system.
F. Lesser engine noise.
G. Optimize electrical equipment performance to extend the lifetime of car.
H. Build-In Electrical Noise Filter. Reduce stereo's interference and improve the brightness of headlights.

I decided to make my own instead of bying one on ebay (from 50$ to 120$)

Its basically only capacitor, I decided to use 2 big capacitor instead of many small like the current voltage stabilizer on ebay. Also
the one you can buy on ebay are always working even if the car is not running. I added a relay connected to the headlight fusebox.
So the voltage stabilizer is only working when I am riding, this help to not draw any current from the battery while you are not using the car.

I use 2 big powerlytic 50v 120000 uF capacitor, one relay, one resistor, one led, one diode and one 15A fuse with some wire for this project.

Here some photo of the ugly beast! :)

Very nice indeed!

I was wondering about something. I remember back in the old days that even if you filtered a rectified wave, you still get ripples. Have you tried adding a smaller capacitor for smooth out the smaller ripples?

Of course, only an oscilloscope would tell you the information.

PS what's the diode for? And the resistor? A capacitive filter doesn't need those as a rule.

OOPS forgot to ask for a cost list and component reseller. Can you let me know this too?

Hi,

The resistor/diode is used for the LED, just to tell the relay is on, but you don't need that. In fact its useless lol because you never see it but and you can hear the relay anyway while testing.

I buy this 2 big caps for 2$ each at a store with the relay (5$) + the wires around 0.65$ per foot, 4 foots of each color (red and black). And the fuse  wire for 3$ and some connector to fit on the relay. Plastic container 1$ dollarshop :). You can probably do it for around 15$.

I heard too that using smaller caps could help but I am not quite so sure about it, its could prob help but I wanted something simple and since my caps are big, they should handle well the small "ripples".

I started using my voltage stab the last week, I connected it on the parking light with my new halo headlight, the old connection was on the main light and its was not a good idea because you use more power from the engine when the headlight are on.

Also I installed my new pulseplug, I will see in around 3/4 weeks what will be the gain of the voltage stab + pulseplug. I dont use my car a lot so it take a long time to fill the tank :)

Also my custum jar "condensator" seam to work well, getting a lot of crap in the jar but that seam to not really change the mileage so far.

So now you don't have to buy gasoline any more?   ;)

Seriously...does it seem to offer any benefit whatsoever that you can detect?  I would think not, other than the fun of building something.

I will see in few weeks since now its connected on the parking light, the volt reg will always work, was not working previously because I did not open the headlight.

I bet I will get a small gain but not 15% like the ads of this kind of product say. More like 1 or 2%.

But even if its just 0.5% its 0.5% less in the pocket of the oil company :)

I wish I knew where I could buy some caps at. Electronics (cheap ones anyway) are very difficult to come by where I live.

What store or kind of store can I buy those $2 caps??

About small caps: Big ones take time to charge up, smaller ones will charge quickly and take care of the small ripples.

I buy them in Acces Electronique, but its only located in Canada(QC) and in the online shop they have nothing.

I suppose mouser.com or digikey could prob have something similar. The important stuffs is the CAPS must be 15V or more, 16V ideally, Bigger voltage just decrease the capacitance so try to use 15V/16V with the bigger capacitance value.

You can add more Caps small or big in serial, its not a problem, since my box was full with 2 caps :)

Ummm there is a huge difference between capacitors in parallel versus series.

Parallel capacitors are additive in value. Ct = C1 + C2 + C3 + etc

Series is like this:  1/Ct = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/C3 + etc

So, by placing capacitors in series, you get a value somewhere in between the largest value and the smallest value.

But thanks for the info!

Hum let me see if I made a mistake, its parallel sorry!

YEah does not seam right with serial :)

Ho btw my caps are 15V not 50V like in the main post. I can no longer modify the post...
