Hello all! I hope you are all having a good Easter weekend. I have been having a big issue with the power for the PS2 advanced trim. I currently have 6 voltage regulators (the 12 voltage one is for the screen and driver board and I'm going to decrease that voltage) all in parallel with each other, and with the input to those 6 being 16V(4 li ion 18650 batteries in series connected to a BMS that then goes to parallel with a USB C charger and the voltage regulators input) at 6A. Since the 6 are in parallel the current then drops to 1A Across them.. this leaves me too much current for 1.75 , 2.5 and 3.5 V regs(all need 0.1A) and too little for the 1.25 reg(3.1A) ( I am unsure what I need for the 5 V reg and if I even need 1, the 12 V one I am going to test the driver and see what current is needed for operation) no matter how many times I try and re arrange the batteries or regulators I still run into the issue of unbalanced current. What is the best way i can balance the currI appreciate any help I can get. Here is the schematic for the voltage regs and the type of buck converter im using, of anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.
