Introduction: How to Convert AC to DC
Today I am going to make Bridge rectifier circuit that will covert AC power to DC.That DC Power we can use in Amplifier and in various electronic devices.
Let's get started,
Step 1: Take All Materials As Shown Below
Materials required -
(1.) Step-down Transformer (For AC Power) x1
(2.) Digital multimeter (For checking AC and DC power)
(3.) Capacitor - 25V 1000uf x1
(4.) Diode - 1N4007 x4
Step 2: Diode - 1N4007
This picture show Anode side and cathode side of the diode.
As you can see in the picture Black side is anode and white side is cathode.
Step 3: Connect Anode Sides of Two Diodes
Firstly we have to connect anode sides of two diodes as connected in the picture.
Step 4: Next Connect Cathode Sides of Two Diodes
Next we have to connect cathode sides of remain two diodes as sown in picture.
Step 5: Connect All Remaining Four Wires
Now connect all remaining four wires of the diodes as you can see in the picture.
Step 6: Cut Extra Wires
Next cut extra wires of diodes and solder it.
Step 7: Connect AC Power Input Wire
Next connect AC Power input wires to diodes as solder in the picture.
# Bridge rectifier will give full wave output.
This is Input AC Power supply to the Bridge rectifier.
Step 8: Now Connect Capacitor
Now we have to connect a capacitor to the bridge rectifier.
Solder +ve pin of capacitor to Cathode side of diodes and
-ve pin of capacitor to Anode side of diodes as you can see in the picture.
Step 9: Connect Output Wires
Now connect Output wires of Rectifier.
Solder +ve output wire to +ve of capacitor and
Solder -ve output wire to -ve pin of capacitor as solder in the picture.
Step 10: How to Use It
Give AC Input power supply using step down transformer to the Bridge rectifier and check its input as shown in picture-1 and
Check its output voltage in DC as shown picture-2.
Have you any doubt about this circuit comment now and follow utsource now for more electronic projects.

Art you forgetting a few things? 1. What voltage are you trying to get? 2. How to choose a step down transformer based on voltage you are trying to get. 3. How to choose a diode...? 4. How to choose a capacitor...?
