    Hello,

    Can you fellow forumites kindly help with this?

    For the drawing below with a resistive load is:

    E.dc.total = E.phase.peak.ac - E.forward*1
    OR
    E.dc.total = (E.phase.peak.ac*SQRT7) - E.forward*1

    WHILE
    I.total = I.phase.rms*7?

    thanks
    Zorchy

    First formula is the one - peak phase minus diode drop. (Minus whatever is lost due to ripple.) The thermodynamics police show up if you try the second equation.
