    TLPS.png Hi every body
    I'm trying to design a Transformer Less power supply as the circuit in attachment,
    by measuring the voltage at the capacitor with AVO in ac mode i got 220V,but by measuring the input of the regulator with AVO in dc mode i got 0V all measuring at no load, and
    i don't know why i got 0V at the i/p of the regulator ?
    although i connected the same circuit with load resistance 2.2K Ohm and without the regulator i got 1.3V as load voltage

    also i'm confused in another thing,
    the output of the diode is not a pure DC since it's half sin wave changed in value and not a direction
    should i measure it with an AVO in DC mode or AC mode ?

    Circuits like you have posted are not discussed in these forums do to the danger issues. They are covered in the terms of service. Your 7812 is missing the ground.The circuit is also a very poor design.

    I suppose you do know that discussion of transformerless power supplies is prohibited on ACC.
