I have a bridge rectifier that is converting 240v AC into approx 358V DC
The rectifier is smoothed by 2 X 10,000uf capacitors
Under full load, I am drawing 3000 watts on the DC side but for some reason the voltage drops down to 280V DC yet the AC side stays at 240
My question is why is my voltage dropping so much? The DC cables are 300 feet long #10 awg wire but the voltage measures the same at both ends +/- 1% so its not lost in the cable. I also checked that all the connectors are tight and making proper contact. Nothing is getting hot either..
The meter I am using the measure with is a "Circuit test DCL-320"
Here are the components I am using: https://www.digikey.ca/product-detail/en/crydom-co/M5060SB400/CC1656-ND/752672
Thanks for any assistance
