I am having a question about inrush current for a simple AC/DC converter.
I am using a transformer from 230 to 36 V,followed by a full bridge rectifier and a filter capacitor of 1000 uF 100V.
When switching the power on, can I expect a high inrush current destroying the transformer or the full bridge rectifier?
After rectification and filtering the DC voltage should be around 50 V. The load will draw around 300 mA at 50V.
Looking at the the rectifier, it seems it can handle a large forward current peak. As for the transformer I have no clue. It seems it has a DC resistance of 6 ohms. Is it safe to assume that for fast inrush currents, the inductance of the transformer will have a high impedance and therefore it will be not a problem?
If this is a problem I think I will have to add a series thermistor I also have a hard time finding out which one would be suitable.
