Output of a stand-alone full wave rectifier is different from the one in the circuit in which it is implemented

Besides the safety issues, the problem with this sort of circuit is that the output voltage depends heavily on the load impedance. You basically have a voltage divider consisting of the impedances of ...

Output of a stand-alone full wave rectifier is different from the one in the circuit in which it is implemented

First off: No. Stepping down 230VAC using your RC / diode networks there leads to a deadly situation, where, if anything fails, it's likely that you'll have 230V on various parts of the system where ...

Are there any step-down regulators without capacitors for a vacuum environment?

The question was whether there is a step-down regulator that does not require an additional capacitor to operate. (I had the same question, which is what brought me here.) Actually the 7805T ...

Can very high voltage and very low current AC produce strong magnetic flux in the coil?

Flux is defined as the integral of voltage over time. For a sine wave, we have: $$ \Phi = \frac{V}{2 \pi F}$$ To obtain "strong magnetic flux", simply increase the voltage and decrease the ...

DC Voltage Step-down at High Current

I probably should replied in the comments, but there is not enough character space. You asked if there is a cheap/easy way for you to step down a high current DC to DC converter. The word "high ...
