I don't know if anything will eventually come of it, but I've been gathering parts for a 50/60hz selectable PSU over the past 2-3 years.

It will take a laptop DC input, convert that to what it needs via DC-DC modules. For the 9VAC output it will use an EGS002 pure sine wave module connected to an H-bridge drive, which will pass through a low-voltage 10A isolating transformer that I bought last week. All other outputs (5V for 64, 5V for fdd, 12V for fdd) will be generated via isolated DC-DC modules (like the Lucent ones - which you can buy surplus now and save $$).

I think I've just about got everything for the project now, but I'm too sick/injured to work on it (all I am able to do is read in bed 98% of the time ... (it's not good as some might think) 😬

Some time ago I was researching for the way to operate any machine, regardlessly of the Assy version, using fully regulated current without even touching the internal motherboard.

I was close to find a suitable method and it worked up to the point that a partially defective Breadbin motherboard, which had intermittent startup, worked perfectly everytime. I gave up helping with innovations though, not worth the sacrifice anymore.

The EGS002 seems to be a valid inverter and it may be tuned up with external filtering. Just make sure that it handles at least 1200mA without issues or peaks.

People sure seem to love complex solutions to simple problems...
The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling, is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side.

In the end having a PSU with just the transformer to have it certified did not work out. I will instead stick to the design of a transformer at 50/60Hz as described here:
http://danieleredivo78.wixsite.com/c64psu
so far I made 7-8 units delivering up to 3.5A at 5V. The nice thing is that using DC-DC converters provide a much lower ripple than AC-DC converters.
For ex Meanwell RS-15~5 datasheet states a ripple of 80mV https://www.tme.eu/it/Document/510a351c ... 20FULL.pdf
which is much more than what I get from using XL4015 DC-DC board with added output caps, I get 35 mV at 3A.

I have now developed a 5A from 5V version of my PSU using two parallel XL4015, in load sharing mode, so they always share the same current. Even there the ripple is around 35-40mV at 5A. So quite nice.
