I recently designed a power supply that was good for about 700mA power and used these diodes https://www.diodes.com/assets/Datasheets/ds28002.pdf They are 4007 diodes. As I am checking the datasheets for my 5A power supply I'm noticing that they are good for up to 1A so I was wondering which diodes are commonly used with high amperage 50 Hz / 60 Hz power supplies? What other components can I expect to change with this change in amperage? Looking forward to your responses
EDIT: this is a standard 50Hz / 60Hz power supply .. buck converter becuase it's high amperage. That is what i'm referrring to in this question, as replacement for 1N4007 diode.
I am also making a different 5A power supply.. which in this case requires Schottky diodes rated for high frequency and 3-4A, in a full bridge rectifier
