Simple PWM Flyback driver tutorial

This is an instructable for making your own PWM (Pulse Width Modulated) flyback driver!
The design is relatively simple and easy to make if you have basic electronic skills.
In fact, you don’t even have to know how a transistor or a MOSFET works to make this. You only have to follow the instructions.

What the PWM driver does:
The driver is fed by a 12V power supply (a regular DC adapter). This DC voltage is chopped into pieces by our MOSFET because it rapidly switches the 12V on and off. This switching is controllable by two potentiometers. One for the ON-time and one for the OFF-time.
If the ON-time and the OFF-time are equal, the output voltage will be 6V.
If the ON-time is larger then the OFF-time, the output voltage will be between 6V and 12V
If the ON-time is smaller then the OFF-time, the output voltage will be between 0V and 6V.
So with this feature, we can control the average voltage that our primary Flyback coil gets. This will change the output voltage.
When we make sure both potentiometers have the same resistance value, we’ll create a block-wave signal that has the same ON- as OFF-time. Decreasing the resistance (of both potentiometers, at the same time) will increase the frequency of the output signal. Increasing the resistance will decrease the frequency.
