Hi! I'm interested in mathematical analysis of Full-Wave Bridge rectifier with smoothing capacitor. I tried to find it on web but without success. I read how smoothing capacitor affect output voltage, but I never saw some mathematical description. Can one mathematically prove it? How can one know which capacitance value to choose? I don't think it's so trivial, I'm pretty sure there must be some mathematical background. Can someone suggest me some book which deals with this problematic and generally with power supplies, how they are made etc.? Thanks in advance.
