Step 1: Acquiring Your Individual Specification:

Ripple Voltage of the Filter Circuit:

Ripple Factor = 10 + (51 x4)/100=12.04

DC Voltage of the Power Supply

Vdc = 8 + (51 x 2)/100 = 9.02

Record Your Specifications in the Spaces Provided Below

Vdc = 9.02

Ripple factor, ripple= 12.04%

Ripple Voltage Vr= Vdc x ripple

Vr = 9.02 x 12.04%

Ripple Voltage Vr= 1.086 V

Vmax = Vdc + Vripple

Vmax = 9.02 +1.086 V = 10.106 V

Maximum Value of the Filtered Voltage, Vfmax = 10.106 V

Vmin = 9.02 – 1.086 = 7.934 V

Minimum Value of the Filtered Voltage, Vfmin = 7.934V

Vpeak = (π/2) x Vdc = 1.57079 x 9.02 = 14.1685 V

Peak Value of the Rectified Signal, Vpeak = 14.1685 V...
