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

Hii friend,

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.

Thank you

    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...?
