    Hey guys.. i am a freshie.. new degree student.. and i am new in electronic fields.. may i know how to convert ac to dc after rectification and filteration process? How can we get a pure dc output voltage? Can we add regulator or zener maybe? :rolleyes:

    The way it usually works is:
    AC------>RECTIFICATION (now it's pulsating dc)-->FILTER (now it's smooth(er) dc)---->REGULATOR if needed

    There are many variations on how to do this, this is just one way.

    Feeding the AC signal through the diode rectifier converts it to DC.
