Introduction: Convert AC to DC by Centre Tapped Rectifier

About: Share diy projects to those who have the same hobby with me

Hii friend,

Today I am going to make a circuit of centre tapped rectifier.This is a full wave rectifier that will convert AC to DC.This circuit will give output DC with full wave.This is the type of full wave rectifier.

Let's get started,

Step 1: Take All Materials As Shown

Materials required -

(1.) Step-down Transformer - (For AC power supply)

(2.) pn-junction diode - 1N4007 x2

(3.) Capacitor - 25V 1000uf

Step 2: Connect Diodes

This transformer is 12-0-12.It converts 220V AC to 12V AC.

Connect Anode side of both diodes in 12-wire of transformer as you can see in the picture.

Step 3: Connect Cathode of Both Diodes

Next we have to connect Cathode side of both diodes each other as you see in the picture.

Step 4: Solder Capacitor

Now we have to solder capacitor to reduce the fluctuations of output DC power.

Solder Positive (+ve) pin of capacitor to the Cathode side of diodes and

solder Negetive (-ve) pin of capacitor to 0-wire of transformer as solder in the picture.

Step 5: Connect Wires for Output

Now we have to connect wires for output power to the circuit.

Connect wires parallel with capacitor for output power supply.

DC Output wires -

From the +ve pin of capacitor will be +ve output of DC and

-ve of capacitor will be the -ve output of DC power supply as shown in the picture,

This DC power supply can use in various electronic devices.

Thank you
