However, Vout cana#39;t exceed Viiu and in fact, from the specification sheet for the LM317, it must be at least about 1.5 volts less than Vm so it wona#39;t reach 18.6 ... To summarize, for a given setting of the pot R2 a particular regulated output voltage is maintained by the LM317 integrated circuit. ... Below is the circuit diagram.
