hello all. Can anyone of you suggest where I can get the 85VAC to 85VDC voltage regulator for my project? Am trying to build a customized power supply system for my personal use.
thanks!

Hello, I think you have to make a full-wave rectifier. Have you done that?

my problem is the type of the diode that i should use in the full wave rectifier now. How can i do those calculations, also how do I know the size of the capacitors to smoothen the output?

Regarding the capacitor, you may find this video helpful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9HsLWmtBnE
Your guidance was so amazing. I have fully implemented my project. Your video helped in the calculation of the capacitance required and selection of the best capacitors to use. I also came across another article about the full wave rectifier and how i should simulate it on proteus to confirm that actually it was a functional circuit. See the article on this link https://www.theengineeringprojects.com/ ... oteus.html
