Power Supply is the power supply for electronics circuits. The main function of the power supply circuit is to change the AC voltage to the required DC voltage. Currently known two power supply systems, namely:
Conventional system with step down transformer 50Hz and diode and elco rectifier circuit.
The switching system known as SMPS (Switching Mode Power Supply)
Conventional Power Supply
In a conventional power supply, the AC voltage is first lowered through a step down transformer and the transformer output is rectified with a diode and flattened with an electrolytic capacitor (elco). For more information about Power Supply System and how it does work you can Click here.
Diode rectifier system there are 3 kinds, namely:
The half-wave rectifier system uses one diode to rectify the AC signal. In this case the diode only passes half of the waveform while the other half wave …
