  • How to make a reliable motorcycle voltage regulator

    hi there,Thanks Arezus for a very informative instructable. Unfortunately mine is not regulating as it should. I made single phase regulator acording to your drawings for my 130w permanent magnet generator. As soon as voltage rises above zener diode (13V) thrshold triacs starts conducting and overall system voltage drops down to 2V instead of regulating and staying at around 13V. Tested circuit on the bench from dc power supply. I can see triacs switching on and off fine when passing 13.5V, diod bridge is working fine as well. Everything looks fine untill i connect it to the generator. Arezus, guys any ideas ? Appreciate
