  • Full Wave Rectifier Circuit Through Bridge Rectification

    I had posted, or tried to post, 3 questions. I don't see them but I found answers so I thought I would share them. These were all about full wave rectifiers. I couldn't find a pinout diagram for a batch of 20 KBPC5010 full wave rectifiers. I'm embarrassed to say that near the rotated pin there is a + sign. That tells us everything. I just didn't see it. I asked where I could find a Cockcroft Walton multiplier that utilizes these nice 1000V 50Amp rectifiers. Like all electrical components, they are cheap if you buy many. I also needed the calculations because I had seen so many schematics that don't provide values for the components. I found a nice one by literally googling "full wave rectifier Cockcroft Walton pdf". I got a booklet or 30. Even better, there is...

I got a booklet or 30. Even better, there is a cool website that has a calculator on the web to provide values for the caps in that configuration at a given frequency. You can just Google that too. There's even a website that has a calculator for everything you can imagine. These are interesting times.
