Title: Voltage regulation circuit for a solar cell charging system

Abstract

A voltage regulation circuit includes an active integrator circuit which generates an output signal representing the time integral of the error between the voltage across a load and a reference voltage. The integrator circuit output is connected to a series of voltage comparators (Each having hysteresis) each of which controls one of a series of separate switch elements each controlling a proportion of the total current flow from a source to the load.
