Introduction: Make Your Own Power Supply
Today, I am going to show you how to prepare your own 5v Power supply with extremely basic things.
This project can be made by anyone who has knowledge about some of the basics.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Components
1. 230v AC-9v AC Transformer
2. 1N4007 Diodes x 4
3. 7805 Voltage Regulator IC
4. 10uF Capacitors x 2
Step 2: Transformer
The transformer used here is 230v AC - 9V AC. The two red wires are for input and two yellow wires are for output and the blue wire is the Center Tape.
Step 3: Circuit Diagram
This is the circuit Diagram for the project.
Assemble the components as shown in circuit Diagram and your circuit will be ready.
Step 4: Rectifier
Rectifier circuit consists of 4 1N4007 Diodes. This diodes are arranged in special Way. Look Circuit Diagram for Connections.
Rectifier circuit Converts AC current to DC.
Step 5: Finally..
Finally add 7805 and two capacitors as per the circuit Diagram and your power supply is ready.
