Low-power transformer-less AC-to-DC converter.


From Raju Baddi's (EDN Design Ideas).

Open and run a transient simulation to see the circuit at work!

  • Ground was included for simulation purposes only to define a zero voltage node. Do not include in the physical system.
  • CF reduced from 470u to 47u.

WARNING: non-isolated, transformerless design poses significant safety issues in many situations. Do not build without consulting an expert for proper precautions. See the comments on the EDN article for more details and suggestions from many commenters.
