    Hi, I want to use below circuit for 24 V power supply. Input is 220VAC but I want to know what voltage rating for capacitor C1 and zener diode I should use when input is 380VAC instead of 220V!?
    Do anyone know how to analyze this circuit?

    Many of us know how to do this, but the circuit in intrinsically dangerous and is banned from discussion here.

    Sorry for your loss.
