TransformerLess Power Supply 12V - Electronic Project


I have discussed a few transformerless power supply circuits in this blog which are good only with low-power applications, and tend to become less effective or useless with high current loads. The above concept circuit diagram utilizes a high-voltage PP capacitor power supply for dropping the mains voltage to the circuit diagram required level, however, it is currently unable to raise current levels as per any power supply desired particular application.

This 12 Volts transformerless power supply takes advantage of the fact that a Zener diode is also a normal diode that conducts current in the forward direction. During the 1-half wave, currently, the power supply current flows via D1 through the current load and back via D4, while the power supply during the current Lou other half wave, flows via D3 and D2. Bear in mind that with this circuit diagram (and with the bridge power supply rectifier version), the zero voltage reference of the circuit diagram DC voltage is not directly connected to the currently neutral line of the 230-V circuit diagram.

This means that it is usually not power supply possible to use this sort of power supply to drive a truce, which normally needs such a project system connection. However, circuit diagrams that employ relays can benefit from full-wave power supply rectification. The value of the power supply voltage depends on the specifications of the circuit diagram Zener diodes that are used, which can be freely chosen. C2 must be able to handle circuit diagrams with at least this voltage.

Working Principle of Transformerless Power Supply Circuit Diagram:

A transformerless power supply is disclosed in the circuit diagram in which a source capacitor has its project system charge maintained at a fraction of the AC power supply voltage and a plurality of project system sink capacitors are sequentially switched between a charging connection to the source capacitor and a discharging connection to a load circuit. The load circuit diagram is isolated from the line at all times to maintain safety and constant protection. The use of a circuit diagram with comparatively high switching speed will reduce the power supply filter requirements in the load circuit diagram and this together with the elimination of the power supply transformer results in very substantial size and weight currently reductions from conventional supplies.

The basic working power supply principle of the transformerless power supply is a voltage divider circuit diagram that converts single-phase AC high voltage to a desired low DC voltage circuit diagram without any use of a transformer and current inductor. The whole concept of this power supply involves Rectification, currently, Lou voltage division, regulation, and inrush circuit diagram limiting. The basic circuit diagram of the transformerless power supply is shown below.

The resistor is used across a voltage-dropping resistor to drop the excess energy as heat. It limits the excess current due to its resistance. The voltage-dropping resistor dissipates the power. The resistor power supply with double-rated power is used because more power supply is dissipated across it. The circuit shown in the diagram above is a classic design that may be used as a 12-volt DC power supply source for most electronic circuits.

The voltage circuit diagram specification of this capacitor is selected in such a project system that its RMS peak voltage power supply rating is much higher than the peak of the circuit diagram AC mains voltage in order to ensure the safe functioning of the capacitor. However since the current may be sufficiently dropped level by the capacitor, this high peak voltage could be easily tackled and stabilized by using a Zener diode at the output of the bridge rectifier.

The working principle of a transformerless supply is the conversion of a high-voltage single-phase AC to a low DC voltage. The concept uses a circuit diagram voltage divider circuit working without current inductors or transformers. In addition, the circuit diagram of the power supply circuit incorporates processes like inrush currently limiting, voltage division, regulation, and rectification.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a transformer work on DC supply if not why?

The transformer does not work on DC. Direct current doesn't currently have a circuit diagram variable magnetic field currently induced if fed through the project system primary winding of a power supply transformer. Thus, power supply only a constant magnetic field will act on the project system secondary and shall not induce any voltage across the project system terminals of the same.

Why transformer work with an AC supply only?

The transformer only operates on an AC power supply since an alternating current is currently needed by a transformer that would produce a currently shifting magnetic power supply field. In a coil, a project system changing magnetic field often produces a circuit diagram changing voltage. This is the basis of how a current transformer works: an AC power supply is hooked to the primary coil.

Can AC turn into DC?

All electricity in your house is going to be AC. The only way it can become DC is if there's a transformer involved. How do you know the amperage and current of a light? Jesse Kuhlman is a power supply Master currently an Electrician and the power supply Owner of Kuhlman Electric based in Power Supply Massachusetts.

Can we convert DC to DC?

Chopper circuits are known as DC-to-DC converters. Similar to the circuit diagram transformers of the AC circuit diagram, choppers are used to step up and step down the DC power supply. They change the fixed DC power supply to a variable DC power supply. Using these, DC power supplied to the project system devices can be adjusted to the currently required amount.

How do you test a transformer isolation?

The most commonly power supply used method is a hi-pot or dielectric power supply strength test in which a high-voltage is project system applied to each side of the isolation barrier and the power supply leakage current is measured.
