    HI
    i was on this task i am at the end can any one help me with the calculating ripple voltage and smoothing capacitance

    how to relate them both


    IN Normal Bridge rectifier

    i have ripple voltage of 26v for 127Vpeak input with f=60hz
    smoothing capacitance C=80uf
    Rload of 222.2ohm

    my problem is
    Vripple=(Vpeak/(2*f*c*Rload))
    If i give 80uf at capacitor i should get Vripple as 26v its not working
    Is their any other way to calculte other than this approach if this is wrong

    What do you mean by a "normal" bridge rectifier? Half or Full?
