but does the voltage regulator care about ripple on its input if the voltage stays above the dropout?
I would use a lower voltage say around 9 volts and compensate with a higher value capacitor myself. However I am often wrong
an 18 volt feed to the 7805 can mean it is going to have to dissipate a lot of heat if the output current is more than about 100mA
