How to Convert AC to DC

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,

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 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.
