How big a capacitor?hi
can somebody please explain, what happens when there is a phase angle regulating circuit, then a bridge rectifier and a resistive load and you connect a capacitor after the rectifier parallel to the load?
thanks
The simple answer is that you get huge nasty spikes of current flowing.hi

SCR based regulators also need an inductor, between bridge and capacitor.The simple answer is that you get huge nasty spikes of current flowing.
This should explain what you are experiencing.
Buzzing, instability and a truly horrible power factor.
