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,

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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
