I recently built a linear power supply and I expected 1.25 - 28v from it @1.5amps. I'm using a Triad F7-28 transformer I get about 34 vac from it. I'm using a LM317T regulator and at the output I've seen up to 43-44 volts DC. I've been able to draw down the voltage to 37volts when drawing .5 amps. I assume once I draw 1.5 amps I'd see around 28v or so. I'm not really happy with this so I'm needing some clues on how to bring this down to 1.25 - 28v range and not see such a big voltage drop based on the load.
