Power Supplies

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

The power supply is a vital but often neglected part of any electronic product. It is the interface between the noisy, variable and ill-defined power source from the outside world and the hopefully clear-cut requirements of the internal circuitry. For the purposes of this discussion it is assumed that power is taken from the conventional ac mains

supply. Other supply options are possible, for instance a low-voltage dc bus, or the standard aircraft supply of 400Hz 48V. Batteries we shall discuss separately at the end of this chapter. rectifier and reservoir: converts the ac transformer voltage to dc, reduces the ac ripple component of the dc and determines the output hold-up time when the input is interrupted
