A classical rectifier is to be designed to provide 5V +/- 1% for a logic circuit, with output power of up to 12W. The input is conventional 220V, 50Hz source.
i) Choose a transformer ratio
ii) Choose a diode configuration
iii) Calculate the capacitor value to meet the requirements
iv) Draw the load voltage, the load current and the source current (secondary side) waveforms for maximum output power (12W).
