I am looking for suggestions as to how to supply power to a gate drive optocoupler i am using.
The supply being used is a 25V (rms) ac supply and intend to supply 10V DC at around 500mA+ from my supply. When i have reduced the voltage, i will maintain it with some caps.
I was looking for an alternative to a high power resistor divider. I thought about a zener diode and i am aware of high power zeners, though this would still need a high power resistor to limit the current.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
