230v ac to 12v 1A dc and 5v 1A dc power supply circuit diagram

 ac to dc converter

In many electronics projects, we see that there is a requirement of a fixed-voltage power supply, fixed means no fluctuation in voltage. The output of any circuit fully depends on input voltage supply and it should be constant. Any sensitive circuit is more essential to operate on regulated power than any normal circuit. If I use RF operation in any circuit then its frequency must be constant because there is a small bit of voltage and current fluctuation make more variation of the output signal. We use the voltage regulator to regulate the voltage supply which maintains constant supply.220/230v ac to 12v/5v/6v DC Regulated Power DC converter Bridge Rectifier as required.

Ac power is easily available to anyone mostly, DC source is not easily available and if available there is no more time availability of continuity and at a time it is necessary to Recharge. AC to DC makes great stability of the power supply and not required charging again. So it is more usable and has more availability of voltage and current than a battery. 

• Converting from AC to DC is not an easy way. AC has different characteristics with respect to DC, and is more risky to humans and any living thing.

1. The first stage is in AC to DC is to take down the voltage as the required level using a step-down transformer

2. The second stage is Rectifying the signal, Rectifiers are used to rectify the signal. Rectifying means converting the ac signal to dc as possible.

3. The third stage is to filter the signal. After rectifying the signal it consists of ripple noise in the dc signal that is not perfectly suitable for operating the circuit. The capacitor is used to filter the signal.

4. The fourth stage is the Regulation, Regulation makes the more stable of any signal to give the circuit to constant supply. A regulator ic or Zener diode is used to make the constant signal.

Note — In the rectifier circuit when we connect the diodes with the transformer output, the terminals of diodes give +ve supply with a negative (cathode) terminal and -ve supply with the anode terminal of a diode.

  1. Hello Mr.Aman, may I know what is the purpose of putting in 2 units of 0.1uf (104) capacitors before and after L7812. How does it play its role in the final circuit diagram in this article ? Thank you in advance.

    1. This is used to maintain the stability at the output and suppress the high frequency ripple noise. By shunting the AC Ripple signal to ground, provide reduced AC at output DC. it does improve transient response
      But this capacitor is Not strictly required.

  2. Greetings! Welcome to SourcingIC.com!!

    We are Hong Kong distributor of the complying with IC brand names for 15 years:


    I recognize you may need to find ICs.

    The significant goal for us is sourcing ICs. As you recognize greater than 99% ICs readily available in this world could be found in China, but it is time-costly to situate or send out queries to thousands of distributors or firms one at a time to discover that obtained supplies and obtain great quotation!

    Step 1: Skype or email our colleague: sales@sourcingic.com
    Action 2: Tell us part number and also the quantity or other requirements
    Action 3: I will source from distributors and our teammate will pick the trustworthy vendor to price quote

    Tip 4: Our seasoned IC technicans will certainly check the ICs to confirm they are genius and also working well

    Tip 5: Well packed as well as delivered

    Payment Technique:
    Paypal/ Western Uniuon/ TT

    See you!

    Ideal Regards,
    Sourcing IC

    To supply every unusual ICs

    Business Background:

    Souring IC Ltd is a Hong Kong based business with China workplaces in various districts. We provide a variety of electronic parts, concentrated on IC consisting of Audio IC, Power Management IC, Consumer Electronic IC, and so on. Our purpose is to supply any components which are hard to be sourced in the electronic market, specifically the one discountinued by manufacturing facilities. With the help of most recent A.I system as well as the elite teammates we owned, we have the ability to source every ICs that is not commonly utilized by the co-operation with thousands factories and agencies in China. We have the ability to give the most competitive price without MOQ.

  3. Hi/ I dont know if this post is still active, I have a question about it, can you send me the Transformer info you used in this circute?
